Abstract: Intermodal transport has received an increased attention by federal and regional governments in Belgium with the objective to slow down the rapid growth in unimodal road transport. In this paper, an assessment framework is developed to perform an ex-ante and ex-post analysis of current and potential policy measures to stimulate the use of intermodal transport in Belgium. The assessment framework includes three core models necessary to evaluate all relevant transport modes and aggregation levels. The methodology of the assessment framework is elaborated. Policy measures are described and grouped into three main categories. Finally, the application of the assessment framework on each of the three groups of policy measures is presented.
