Abstract The Norwegian government aims to take freight off the roads and transfer it to rail and ship. The present report analyses the most important aspects of intermodal competition along major domestic and international freight corridors, for different commodities and lengths of haul. The knowledge is then used to analyse what tools will be the most effective to realise the intended modal shift. Being based on available statistics, the study has used the national freight transport model to analyse policy measures to enhance intermodality.
