 Abstract
Freight transport by railway is gaining more attention at present as a countermeasure against global warming. In keeping with this purpose, the present study examined various methods for promoting railway use through minimization of the transfer resistance of bulk freight at railway stations. First, the transfer-related factors that shippers consider as important when choosing railway as a transport mode were identified. Also, the relative importance and the level of influence of each factor during the transfer stage were evaluated. Policy directions for reducing transfer resistance in railway stations were then proposed based on the analysis of the transfer resistance factors. The policy directions include both hardware and software approaches. The necessary reduction ranges with regard to the transfer cost and time through policy implementation efforts were suggested as well.
