Abstract

The Efficient Cross-Border Transport Models provide practical solutions to the difficulties in cross-border operations of land transport. With limited requirements of intergovernmental arrangements or absence of such arrangement, goods and passengers can be more efficiently moved across borders and for onward carriage based on the models.

With recent developments of trucking industry and technologies, the models use prime mover-trailer system and commercial cooperation to overcome institutional barriers and conflicts of commercial interests in international land transport. It can also largely reduce concerns on safety and security with entry of foreign vehicles in the region. It can also minimize the needs for difficult cross-border arrangements, such as visa for driver, driving license, vehicle insurance, temporary importation of vehicles, standards of vehicles and transport permits. Similarly, the models also provide good practices for efficient inter-country railway operations.
