This makes water-based transport most suitable for the transport of low value goods over long-distances. Inland waterways transport competes with road, rail and short-sea shipping. Ocean shipping has a large market share when one measures this by shipping volume in tonnes. However measured in terms of value, a high percentage of international transport goes by air. g. for express freight). Air transport has high variable costs compared to the fixed costs [16]. In comparison to other modes, the unit costs are quite high, and especially so for large volumes.

Kroes large private carriers competing for international market share while smaller carriers compete for inland waterways transport. Water-based transport vessels tend to be considerably bigger than the vehicles used in road and rail transport. They offer low unit rates but also low operational speeds. This makes water-based transport most suitable for the transport of low value goods over long-distances. Inland waterways transport competes with road, rail and short-sea shipping. Ocean shipping has a large market share when one measures this by shipping volume in tonnes.

The most important drivers of total freight transport (measured in tonnes or km) are the volume and structure of consumer demand and production and the trade patterns. Logistic developments and attributes of the modes (especially costs, time, reliability, flexibility), on the other hand, are more important drivers of modal split and shipment size. The following developments with respect to these drivers have taken place in recent years and can be expected to shape freight transport in the years to come: • Consumer demand is likely to rise in many if not most parts of the world, which in turn would lead to an increase in the number of freight shipments.
