Sammanfattning (abstract):
This article analyses the phenomenon of hinterland transport by rail and the remarkable journey that has taken place during the last ten years in Europe and especially in Scandinavia. Furthermore, it includes a brief examination of how current trends affect the role and development of rail for hinterland transport. The development, particularly in Scandinavia, has lead to a situation where most of the potential market for hinterland transport of maritime containers is already realised. Actors are now facing new challenges as a result of the current financial crisis and global recession. The impact so far is not a dramatic decrease of transport volumes, but transport systems such as the Scandinavian rail shuttle system now show modest growth figures in comparison to the last ten years’ 15 to 20 percent of annual growth. Combining, it is evident that rail shuttle services and dryports will still have an important role in the future for ensuring competitive and sustainable logistics systems under the condition that it is able cope with the imminent challenges.
