Specific assessment

With regard to the modal split of transport, no major technological substitution is expected over the 2000-2030 horizon. For freight transport, trucks are expected to further enhance their predominance (from 69% to 77.5% over the 2000-2030 period) at the expense of rail (from 17% to 11%) and inland navigation (from 14% to 11.5%).

The assessment is based on the European Environmental Outlook N 4/2005
