Optimizing the use of existing infrastructures and implementing policies designed to effectively balance all traffic flows, while promoting alternatives to the road transport mode, turns out to be of prime importance in extrapolating the current increase in the flow of goods and its impact on the risk of network saturation. Excellent knowledge of the various transport modes and their supporting networks is therefore essential to assessing the inherent spare capacities of these modes.

Description

Optimizing the use of existing infrastructures and implementing policies designed to effectively balance all traffic flows, while promoting alternatives to the road transport mode, turns out to be of prime importance in extrapolating the current increase in the flow of goods and its impact on the risk of network saturation. Excellent knowledge of the various transport modes and their supporting networks is therefore essential to assessing the inherent spare capacities of these modes. The Direction Générale des Infrastructures, des Transports et de la Mer (DGITM, ex-DGMT) [general directorate for the infrastructures, sea and transportation] responsible for transport at the Ministère de l’Écologie, du Développement Durable, des Transports et du Logement (MEEDTL, ex-MEDAD) [French ministry of Ecology, sustainable development, transport and housing] has expressed considerable expectations regarding this subject and has therefore requested preparation of a guide to freight network capacity, with an English complete translation.
