Targeting Rail Freight

 

In the fourth of a regular series of columns in Logistics Manager magazine, I discuss the UK government’s commitment to set a target for increasing rail freight traffic. I argue that it would make more sense to set a modal split target and that the choice of metric will be critical. Because of changes in railfreight’s commodity mix, the tonne-kilometre is no longer the most appropriate measure. CO2 savings from modal shift would be a preferable indicator.
