This study reports the results of a quick-turnaround analysis performed by the European-American Center for Policy Analysis for the Netherlands Ministry of Transport, Public Works and Water Management. The purpose of the study was to help the Ministry in its efforts to develop a policy to reduce the growth in truck traffic and to shift freight to non-road modes of transport (in particular, to a freight rail line that is being built between Rotterdam and Germany). The approach was to use the methods, data, models, and results of an earlier project that the EAC performed for the Ministry (the FORWARD project) to estimate the relative benefits that might be expected from their ongoing freight transport projects.
