Abstract

As key hubs in international transport chains, ports have the potential to promote the choice and composition of sustainable transport solutions as a form of corporate social responsibility. They can promote the internalization of both social and environmental externalities by means of differentiated fees and other incentives, seeking to influence factors such as the efficiency of the transport distribution, the selection of the mode of transport, and the type of vehicles and fuels used, all of which have an effect on the environmental impact of hinterland distribution of cargo. This chapter aims to identify the green incentives and measures related to hinterland transport that are available to ports and analyze their feasibility.
