Abstract

Due to logistics cost being a major component of national competitiveness, efficient freight transportation by multimodal transport is needed to save transportation cost and time. This paper deals with the efficient linkage of railroad and shipping to save on logistics costs and improve national competitiveness in Korea. First of all, the operation status of the train-ferry in Europe and China and the trade status of Korea, Japan and China are discussed. The northeast Asian logistics system which linked railroad and shipping is recommended for Korea in order to play an important role as the logistics hub in northeast Asia, to cut down logistics cost and to reinforce national competitiveness. The train-ferry system will contribute to revitalize railroad freight transportation and develop the multimodal logistics system.
