A Study on the Intercontinental Transportation Competitiveness Enhancement Plan between Northeast Asia and Europe Using the Trans-Siberian Railway

Ji-Young Song and Hee-Seung Na
Abstract—According to the extension and growth of the Northeast Asian economic bloc, the transfer of logistics between Northeast Asian countries and European countries has enlarged and the major countries of Northeast Asia have played a central role in the Northeast Asia economic bloc as logistics hubs. Currently, due to an increase in international freight volume, international shipping and air freight continues to increase. Due to lack of infrastructure and increase of transportation costs however, Northeast Asia’s logistics competitiveness has weakened. It is therefore necessary to develop more efficient and reliable international transportation network. By analyzing the current status of major transportation paths between Northeast Asia and Europe currently in operation and their technical characteristics, this paper suggests an improvement plan for more efficient transportation and a transportation competitiveness enhancement plan, to solve realistic problems such as economic transportation technology and uncertainty of demand, and enhance the possibility of transportation costs and time savings. However, a result of comparative analysis of marine transportation and transcontinental railway shows that transcontinental railway competitiveness has decreased sharply. To enhance this, it necessary to invest and build mutual cooperation between countries, form a global network and create a mutual compensation system for an international transportation complex.
