ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the obstacles that must be overcome if the chemical industry is to be persuaded to use methods other than road transport for freight movement. Alternatives to the road transport of chemicals have been suggested by the European Union such as the availability of subsidies for pipeline. Among the barriers that must be overcome include the location of suitable loading and discharge ports and the lack of an extensive and modern, integrated rail freight network.
