The Netherlands is both a very densely populated and a highly developed country, in which transport is a key factor of the pondingly it has a very dense and modern infrastructure, facilitating transport with road, rail, air and water its Global Competitiveness Report for , the World Economic Forum ranked the Dutch . MODE OF TRANSPORT: is a term used to distinguish substantially different ways to perform transport. The most dominant modes of transport are aviation, ship transport, and land transport, which includes rail, road and off-road transport. Other modes also exist, including pipelines, cable transport, and space transport. Human transport did not support the exchange of goods between or across major geographic regions. The range of human transport prior to the availability of mechanized transport was: a kilometer radius, or approximately 20 square kilometers. Rail transport is a means of transferring of passengers and goods on wheeled vehicles running on rails, also known as is also commonly referred to as train transport. In contrast to road transport, where vehicles run on a prepared flat surface, rail vehicles (rolling stock) are directionally guided by the tracks on which they run.

Surface Transportation Program (STP) funds are now eligible for surface transportation infrastructure improvements in port terminals for direct intermo-dal interchange, transfer and port access. However, the competition for these funds is intense, as states have 27 other eligible funding activities in which to use these federal Size: KB. The federal surface transportation program governed by the Intermodal Surface Transportation Efficiency Act of (ISTEA) exerts a major influence on the performance and development of intermodal freight transportation in the United States.
