The paper presents analyses of possibilities for reduction of the greenhouse gas (GHG) emission on Corridor IV by use of intermodal alternatives to present freight transport routes. The analyses is based on results of the EU funded project "Greening Intermodal Freight Transport in South-East Europe", which was motivated by the fact that the dominant polluter in the SEE is road freight transport. The main idea for the GHG emission reduction on the Corridor IV was shift of part of freight transport from roads to present railway and maritime transport alternatives. However, such shift threats to increase time waste and productivity of the freight transport, requiring a careful cost-benefit analysis before implementation.
In this second part of the analysis are presented the results obtained on basis of the methodology and the proposed alternatives presented in the first part. The results show that the key factor of GHG reduction on Corridor IV is preparation of an efficient railway network before any other steps are performed.
