THE EFFECT OF CONTAINERISATION ON GENERAL TRANSPORT ECONOMICS

THE TREND IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF INTEGRATED TRANSPORT AND THE USE OF LARGE CONTAINERS ARE A CLEAR INDICATION THAT TRANSPORT IS ENTERING A NEW ERA WHERE LARGE CONTAINERS AND TRANSCONTAINERS FORM THE TECHNICAL FOUNDATION WITH FAR REACHING CONSEQUENCES FOR THE WHOLE TRANSPORT SECTOR. THIS WILL RESULT IN THE RATIONALIZATION OF THE TRANSPORT SYSTEM, WHICH CAN BE EXPECTED TO PRODUCE LOWER TRANSPORT COSTS, AND A RATIONAL INVESTMENT POLICY CONCERNING THE FUTURE DEVELOPMENT OF TRANSPORT AS WELL AS THE CREATION OF AN OPTIMUM TRANSPORT STRUCTURE. DATA ON SAVINGS MADE BY USING CONTAINERS ARE GIVEN FROM RESEARCH DONE BY THE "KIRILO SAVIC" INSTITUTE IN BELGRADE. /AUTHOR/
