Abstract:

The purpose of this study, commissioned by Transport Canada (TC), is to evaluate the environmental and social impacts of shortsea shipping in Canada and to compare the outcome with the rail and road modes. In this context, a model incorporating the best approaches for the assessment of environmental and social impacts was developed so as to compare the three transportation modes on an economic basis. The results of the modal comparison should be used with care, given the general and specific limitations of the model developed for the study.
