Abstract

With an increasing global integration of supply chains, freight transportation experiences a worldwide boom and the freight railway sector gains importance. In Germany, transportation volumes on railways showed even larger growth rates than alternatives on highways and waterways during the last decade (see Figure 1.1). Measured by ton kilometers, the freight railway transportation volume in Germany rose by more than 50 percent from 2002 to 2008.
