The Development and Main Problems of International Transport Systems

  • R. Squilbin
Part of the International Economic Association Publications book series (IEA)


The spectacular development of international exchange in recent decades makes it necessary for transport operators to examine carefully the matter of adapting their means to the demands of the loaders. The following considerations are concerned solely with rail transport and will be based mainly on experience drawn from railway operation in Europe, a continent with highly developed international rail links and considerable international traffic. The conclusions which will be drawn could be regarded as specific to this situation. Nevertheless, they will be suitable for wide consideration on the railways of other continents, perhaps avoiding certain errors of assessment for the railways concerned or indicating to them certain worthwhile steps.
