    transport Seamless transport is a powerful strategic vision for our future Wherever people and goods move in highly connected ways transport has proved a dynamic engine for growth and well being Seamless connections between cities and regions notably through high speed rail have had huge impact on national and regional economies Seamless access to transport improves citizens access to schools universities labour markets and leisure activities Being able to move between geographic locations and transport modes with minimal impediments is a prime desire of all transport users Yet the structure of our transport systems with modal transfers different ownership international border crossings and security threats makes overcoming the inherent friction in our transport system a permanent challenge How can we improve seamlessness To what extent is complete connectivity ultimately feasible What approaches should be taken politically institutionally and technologically These are the issues that transport leaders from government public administration business and academia will explore at the International Transport Forum s Annual Summit on 2 4 May 2012 in Leipzig Germany Through your participation in this unique global platform you can help shape the transport policy agenda and the future of transport We cordially invite you to the 2012 Summit of the international transport Forum on Seamless Transport Making Connections held under the presidency of Japan We look forward to seeing you in Germany The Annual Summit of the International Transport Forum is the leading global platform for debate on the future of transport At the Summit Ministers from more than 50 member countries engage decision makers from industry civil society and research to explore the trends that will shape mobility in the 21st century The International Transport Forum s 2012 Summit on Seamless Transport Making Connections will consider all aspects of connectivity in transport How can we improve the

  • OECD-ITF Publications: Round Tables
    of Transport Project Appraisal Roundtable 149 Cost benefit analysis CBA is indispensable for making good decisions on what transport projects to fund It essentially aims to figure out which projects offer the best value for money However the practical relevance of CBA does not always live up to its appeal in principle One problem is that there is sometimes disagreement over what to include in CBA both on the cost side and the benefits side of the analysis As a result value for money is not always fully transparent More politically value for money is only a partial criterion for decision making leading to disagreement about the relative importance of the results from CBA compared to other inputs to the decision making process This report examines the extent to which these shortcomings can be addressed In terms of what to include in CBA discussion focuses on equity and distributional impacts productivity effects agglomeration benefits and external costs The focus then turns to how best to present guidance on project selection to decision makers The report includes papers on the way CBA is used in three countries France Mexico and the United Kingdom and how it is evolving in response to changing policy priorities Go to summary and conclusions publication 112 pages OECD Paris April 2011 43 60 38 5500 ISBN 978 92 821 0129 2 Browse a free copy online Go to full publication at the OECD bookshop Other languages Stimulating Low Carbon Vehicle Technologies Round Table 148 Governments around the world are increasingly intervening in automobile markets to improve fuel economy and reduce emissions of CO2 from new vehicles This report reviews the rationale for such intervention and examines measures for maximum effectiveness and minimum cost The Round Table brought together economists policy makers and auto engineers with the aim of advancing understanding of why car markets currently fail to deliver sufficient fuel economy It started by questioning whether any additional measures would be necessary once an appropriate price for carbon dioxide is established via fuel taxes It confirmed that there are indeed market imperfections that merit additional government intervention Fuel economy and CO2 regulations are an essential part of the package The key to maximising the benefits of such regulations is long term planning The longer the timeframe the less industry investment is handicapped by uncertainty Subsidies to electric vehicles are more problematic because of the risks of prematurely picking winning technologies and creating subsidy dependence And electricity production has yet to be decarbonised However intervention to steer innovation in this direction is merited so long as the risks of not attaining climate policy targets are seen as higher than the risks of intervention Go to summary and conclusions publication 164 pages OECD Paris January 2011 65 91 58 8400 ISBN 978 92 821 0291 6 Browse a free copy online Go

solid case for congestion charges as an element of a successful urban transport policy But examples of real world congestion charging systems remain few and far between What can be done to improve the chances of their more widespread adoption in practice This report draws lessons from attempts to introduce congestion charges Technology is not an obstacle and technologies should serve policy purposes instead of define them Charging systems are not cheap and thus should only be used where congestion is severe Public acceptance is seen to be the key to successful implementation Although environmental benefits and careful deployment of toll revenues may improve acceptance a charging system should never lose sight of its principal aim which is to reduce congestion Go to summary and

Integration and Competition between Transport and Logistics Businesses Round Table 146 Some very large multinational transport and logistics firms have emerged to provide integrated transport services to shippers in the globalised economy Do these firms escape regulatory oversight from national competition authorities because of their sheer scale Do they pose additional threats to competition when they merge with or acquire other companies in the supply chain The Round Table brought competition experts together with researchers on maritime shipping rail freight and logistics to identify critical competition issues and appropriate regulatory responses An examination of the strategies of transport and logistics companies reveals that vertical integration can yield efficiencies but usually reflects a need to improve the use of expensive fixed assets rather than control all parts of the supply chain This usually explains why shipping lines acquire terminal operators Horizontal acquisitions where similar companies serving the same market merge are more likely to raise competition concerns Problems are particularly prone to arise at bottleneck infrastructure facilities The Round Table report provides an economic framework for examining competition in global transport and logistics businesses it discusses the adequacy of the remedies available to regulators when competition is threatened and explores the role of competition authorities and Transport Ministries in ensuring markets are efficient Go to summary and conclusions publication 184 pages OECD Paris

airports are heavily congested The report determines which approaches are likely to work best and also assesses strategies for managing greenhouse
