RECORDIT research project aims to define and validate a methodology for the calculation of the real costs of intermodal freight transport in order to compare real costs to charges and taxes currently paid, to assess current imbalances and market distorsions and to recommend policy and business actions allowing to drastically reduce intermodal costs and to increase the attractiveness of intermodal transport options. Special emphasis is given to the extensive use of bottom-up valuation techniques, the application of marginal cost pricing to intermodal transport, the development of a dedicated Decision Support module and the promotion of intermodal transport through public and private initiatives.
