Environmental protection, economic efficiency and intermodal competition in freight transport

ABSTRACT
The awareness of the consequences of a further rise in transport for the environment has not only been a matter of concern for scientific researchers but also for planners and policy-makers. In fact environment is now an ever present factor in the new political agenda and issues of excessive traffic congestion and global atmospheric pollution are increasingly attracting administrators attention. One of the most important scenario proposed for the protection of the environment, taking into account the adverse effects of traffic, is the redistribution of freight transport demand. In this paper the Italian situation has been tested evidencing productive sectors and regions really benefiting from a more effective functioning of the freight transportation system. The introduction of a pollution tax is also discussed and numerical simulations in terms of reduction of pollution emissions and transportation costs are provided.
