Abstract

The consequences of a traffic accident involving a lorry is often substantial, but the stakes increase considerably if the lorry carries dangerous goods that can harm people, other living organisms, the environment, property and disturbances in the transport system by closed roads for decontamination. It is of great interest to shippers, transport providers and society at large to reduce the risk of such accident and mitigate any consequences should such accidents occur. The purpose of this paper is to identify and map the stakeholders of dangerous goods transport by land modes and analyse their interest and the relationships between them. The research is based on a literature review and interviews, and takes a wide approach including actors not only actively involved in transport, but also rescue services, policy makers, regulating authorities, municipalities and citizens. Results from the study include a graphical mapping of actors, their influences and relationships in a three level framework of Infrastructure, Transport network, Freight flow and Information flow and the traffic, transport and logistics service markets connecting them. It is observed that not only the traditional transport actors but also societal actors have a large influence on the transport of dangerous goods. The mapping can be useful as a basis for such improved information sharing.
