Road transport still dominates freight sector across Europe and especially Eastern Europe, which is dependent on road transport due to lack of infrastructure investments and know how in making use of sustainable ways of transport.
Railways and inland waterways are alternatives that could help reduce logistics costs, congestions and pollution, and although progress has been made, road transport remains the more competitive way for companies in Romania, Bulgaria, Serbia, Ukraine and other countries in Eastern Europe, especially for containerized goods.
In Romania, for example, according to a 2018 report of UIC, intermodal transport accounts for only 4% of the total freight volumes transported by rail.
Eastern Europe Connected 2019 explores the opportunities that countries in the region have in enhancing the competitiveness of sustainable transport modes and better integrate them into the supply chain in order to create value and enhance business profitability.
