The paper studies shippers' preferences for road and intermodal rail transport. A stated preference interview was performed on logistics managers of 95 manufacturing firms. A logit choice model is estimated and the relative importance of the main freight service attributes is identified.

Their relevance for the current transport and infrastructure policy is then discussed.
