Abstract (Swedish)
Modal split in freight transport has become a major issue in the last decade. Whereas transports account for an increasing part of energy consumed in Europe, the growth of freight carried in the European Union has been more important than its economic growth. Hence, considering that modes of transport display different costs for the society, it is essential not only to understand what repercussions the use of modes generate, but also what factors determine their respective shares of modal split. Here, national dissimilarities in 30 European countries are analysed to inquire inland modal split. The results are then compared with policies in the European Union and Germany to adapt this modal split to its specific issues.
