ASPECTS OF COMBINED GOODS TRANSPORT IN AUSTRIA

ASPEKTE ZUM KOMBINIERTEN GUETERVERKEHR IN OESTERREICH

This paper analyzes the significant characteristics of combined road and rail goods traffic and its economic importance for road and rail systems. Because of the relatively short distances involved the basic conditions in Austria are not particularly favourable. But for export and transit traffic there are greater possibilities for development, given the appropriate economic and political basis, especially in the case of road-railer traffic. The loss-making piece goods traffic of the railways could be rationalized by proper co-ordination between road and rail and by establishing a junction network on the west German model. Altogether combined traffic offers possibilities of rationalizing the transport economy and an aid to the modernization of the railways.
