På väg mot marginalkostnadsprissättning inom sjötransportsektorn
Swedish National Road and Transport Research Institute.
2003 (Swedish)Report (Other academic)
Abstract [sv]

Besides the open sea, ports, fairways, pilot services, and ice-breaking are

the main maritime infrastructure components. Marginal costs of maritime

transport can be divided into the following groups: emissions to water and

air, accidents, and costs related to infrastructure usage. The first marginal

cost type is the occurrence of negative external effects to third-men outside

the transport system. The marginal costs from infrastructure use are related

to the parts that invest, maintain, and provide the services in themselves as

well as to the users. The latter part is affected by restrictions in

capacity, which can affect the user costs of the services. This report

considers all these marginal costs components, except emissions to air. The

basic purpose of the report is to narrow down the state of knowledge

regarding: - Marginal cost pricing in theory; - Empirical research regarding

marginal cost pricing; - Review availability of data and how institutional

conditions affect the possibilities for implementation of marginal cost based

pricing. The scope of the report is limited to the state of knowledge

concerning maritime infrastructure of the types mentioned above and external

effects from accidents and emissions to water. A secondary purpose of the

report is to give suggestions for further research based on the authors' view

of the state of knowledge.
