New Eurasian Land Transport Initiative (NELTI 2) - Final Report and Road Map

Launched in 2008, the IRU’s New Eurasian Land Transport Initiative (NELTI) has entered its second phase as NELTI-2 in 2009. For two years, it monitored regular commercial deliveries and spanned the Eurasian landmass along five routes. This report presents the outcomes of these two years. It confirms that road transport links between Europe and Asia are economically attractive and are a viable alternative to saturated maritime trading routes. The report also concludes that in order to realise the growth potential of these routes, it is essential to remove the remaining procedural impediments at borders and to develop the necessary auxiliary infrastructure.
