Abstract

Within the European Commission’s 6th Framework Programme, the REORIENT project is investigating ways to provide seamless international rail freight transport, in order to make rail transport more attractive and increase the share of freight being transported by rail. In order to achieve its objective, the REORIENT Consortium developed a methodology that includes surveys, data collection, network modelling, and evaluation tools. The paper presents an overview of these methods and focuses on the planned project activities to evaluate promising strategies. Effects related to competitiveness, societal welfare and equity are evaluated applying cost-benefit-analysis and the multi-criteria decision aiding approach ELECTRE III.
