Abstract

The aim of this paper is to propose an intermodal logistics Corridor Vc, relying on the European Union transport policy, which will be in the function of regional development. The main goal is to analyze a potential route of freight intermodal transport between the ports of Ploče and Brčko in order to popularize this intermodal line at the international level. Among the most important activities in achieving this goal is the integration in the Eurocorridor system defined by the EU at the Pan-European conferences. This integration is of crucial importance for companies to successfully execute their supply chain processes both domestically and internationally. The contribution of this paper is reflected in the following: based on the analysis of the current socio-economic situation and the condition of the intermodal transport system in Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH), as well as existing strategic studies and development plans, with the proposed scenario of intermodal corridor optimization we intend to provoke a debate among transport experts, logistic/freightage operators and others in BiH and beyond, who will work to reduce obstacles to the establishment of a quality and functional intermodal system. This should also result in the creation of a strong integrated intermodal freight transport network in BiH, that will be a quality alternative to other international intermodal flows from the aspect of shorter transport time, lower transport costs and more favorable ecological aspects of transportation. The implementation of this scenario should ultimately lead to the development of the entire region.
