Abstract

The majority of freight originated from Scotland is trucked south to go via Channel Tunnel or ports in Southeast England. As Scotland’s only ferry connection to mainland Europe, however, the service between Rosyth and Zeegrugge is struggling with insufficient traffic flows in spite of its efficiency and cost advantages. This paper aims to run a comparative study between the ferry and other transport modes, and identify the critical factors in strengthening the attractiveness of Rosyth – Zeebrugge as a favoured intermodal maritime logistics corridor for Scottish freight transportation.
