Potential Freight Volumes of the Kvarken Ferry Link: Base Report to the Midway Alignment project
2014 (English)Report (Other academic)
The Kvarken Ferry Link is a maritime transport connection between Sweden and Finland. This report is a deliverable from the Centre for Regional Science (CERUM) at Umeå University to the Midway Alignment project. The purpose of the report is to analyse the freight demand for the ferry by estimating the maximum potential freight transport in the catchment area of the ferry. The analysis is based on a model analysis of the maximum potential freight volumes in the catchment area of the ferry across the Kvarken strait using input data from the Swedish national freight modelling system Samgods. The results are combined with a scenario analysis where the effect of different forecasts for the Kvarken ferry is studied. The analysis might serve as an input in a subsequent analysis of the market potential and transport demand for the ferry link between Vaasa in Finland and Umeå in Sweden.
