Abstract:

In a contract for the SAMGODS group, containing the Swedish national road, rail and aviation administrations and led by SIKA, RAND Europe, together with Transek has carried out an idea study on a new national freight transport model system for Sweden. The objective of the study was To provide state-of-the-art ideas that are consistent and innovative on a conceptual framework for policy orientated analyses and modelling of freight transport in a Swedish context. The new Swedish freight transport model system, that should succeed the present SAMGODS model, should cover all modes road, rail, air, maritime and geographic levels international, national, regional. Furthermore, it should be able to provide medium and long run forecasts certainly including 10-25 years ahead, and be capable of being used to assess transport policy measures and for the evaluation of infrastructure projects. The SAMGODS group has decided to commission four idea studies, each of which can cover either the full model system or parts of it. This report contains the outcomes of an idea study covering the full model system.
