Railroads play a crucial role in the Eurasian ITCs. Because of the speed and reliability of deliveries it provides, railway transportation is starting to compete with shipment by sea (advantage of speed) and air (advantage of cost). The competition with alternative routes has to be taken into account, whereas the strategy should be built around the available advantages of the existing routes and the complementary nature of others.
The paper focuses on the railroad network across Eurasia that consists of six major corridors. The results obtained from this study establish the need to increase the processing capacity at border control points to maximize the utilizability.
