dc.description.abstractThis publication examines the impacts of the development of inland intermodal transport network and logistics facilities on hinterland penetration of ports. It presents a series of five case studies on ports that have expanded their markets into hinterland areas or areas beyond their normal reach through the development of intermodal networks and logistics facilities. The publication provides an overview of the challenges faced by Asian ports, as well as some of the early signs of success achieved by some of these ports in penetrating hinterland markets with a brief consideration of the potential benefits that can be gained from improved intermodal transport networks, as well as the role that ports, other transport chain players and governments can play in realizing these benefits. The publication provides a set of policy guidelines to help transport policy makers improve transport and logistics facilities to expand port hinterland from various aspects, including facilitation of international trade, facilitation of market access, transport planning to support development of intermodal system and institutional capacity building.
