  • 1. 1The Future Prospects For Intermodal Transport On Rail InScandinaviaBjarne Ivar WistDirector Strategy and information
  • 2. 2CargoNet Our train replaces more than 600.000 transportson road with average transport length of more than500 km. 91% delivered within 15 minutes in 2012. Over 50 % market share of the main routes inNorway. 450 meter trains. Average speed 70 km / h. High frequency. Two lines in Sweden - partly owned subsidiaryReal Rail AB. Our system trains are designed for industrialcustomers. Turnover: approximately NOK 1,100 million Number of employees: approximately 570
  • 3. 3Great opportunities for intermodal transportation CargoNet have experienced how close strategic partnership with ourlargest customers generates growth – focus on “high value cargo”. Since we ended the wagonload business back in 2003, we have hadmore than 80% growth in intermodal traffic. More than 70% of the volumes of the largest fright forwarders in Norwayare transported on an intermodal rail shuttle. CargoNet and rail transport has a market share of over 50% of the totaltransport market on the main transport corridors.
  • 4. 4A high market share means increased standards forpunctuality and coordination throughout the value chain New customers with new and more demanding expectations. Competing more directly with road transport. Handling transfer from one transport mode to another. Focus on capital utilization has until resent years, not been the mostimportant for railway companies – intermodal transportation has been akey factor for changing focus.
  • 5. 5Reduced punctuality and regularity - the infrastructure is notdeveloped in line with customers requirements Reduced transport time on the roads - construction completed faster thanthe rail network. In recent years its only built a few terminals for rail - old terminals do notsatisfy the customers or the railway companies requirements. There are many good projects under development, but progress is tooslow.
  • 6. 6The challenge – how to cope with low margins andinfrastructure problems Focusing on equipment utilization – transport times and concepts. Stronger commitment from the customers – both parts have to take risks. Dedicated products and concepts – fish transportation. Low margins leave no room for more companies to make money in thesame value chain – how do we deal with the terminals? Today we focus too much on the limitations, and too little on thosecustomers who want a strategic partnership.
  • 7. 7The new agenda In our role as intermodal operator we have the opportunity to challengethrough genuine cross-border products - focus on transport corridors. Challenge the infrastructure managers. Challenge the technical barriers. Challenge the limitations of unions. By doing so we earn the trust of our customers.
  • 8. 8The best solution Intermodal solutions provides the best utilization of the infrastructure. Intermodal solutions provide the best social benefits of infrastructure. Intermodal solutions will help to build confidence in the railway transport. My experience is that intermodal solutions also represent the lowesttransaction costs between the customers and the railway.
