This present framework aims to identify incentives and fees established by ports in order to improve the environmental performance of its connecting transport network, with focus on hinterland logistics. Through an analysis of several case studies around the world, it has been identified and analysed five main incentives from a Swedish perspective with the help of key stakeholders. Thus, this study permits proposed measures based on effect and feasibility for further research. The results from the workshop session suggests that the reduction of air emission measure, the modal shift and intermodal incentive would have higher impact on sustainability. However, not all cases would gain industry acceptance and finally, only the reduction of air emission incentive would be easy to implement and be interesting to analyse in the future.
