The role of Far East economic bloc has become the most important than ever, as the world market is globalized with the rapid growth of foreign trade.
The expansion of trading and economic cooperation are being propelled with the policy to make the rapid growth of Far East economic bloc between Europe and Central Asia including Russia.
Even though the rates of cargoes for international shipping and air transportation are relatively increasing in Korea, our international
competitive power has weakened on account of the lack of harbor and airport facilities, and the increasing cost of logistics.
Therefore, the investment of international transportation web is the comprehensive method that encourages the world to build new facilities or remodel the old facilities to cover the market demand.
It will be requested to raise land carriage as well as air transportation for making Korea as a leader of logistics in Far East, so that the importance of the connection between TKR and TSR is getting increased with being activated of railway cargo transportation.
Furthermore, TKR for economic cooperation between North and South Korea has been realized and TSR will be utilized in the near future, so that it is the necessity to activate domestic railway cargoes as well as international railway transportation cooperation, administrative policy.
Now, UN ESCAP of UN set up Continental Crossing Rail to connect between Far East and Europe, and is propelling the business carrying international container cargoes by way of showing an example. One route was chosen in the business and set up the train route, and it is groping for the solutions in connection with cost, route, time, service.
However, Northern Route of Continental Crossing Rail is operated by China, Russia, Mongolia, Belarus, Poland that have rail routes as a operator among countries in Europe, Far East.
On the contrary, there is no reason for Korea in connection with the management of Northern Route of Continental Crossing Rail because of not involving in anything. If TKR connects to TSR, Northern Route can be connected from Far east to Pusan.
Now, Korea takes a lot of high percentages of departure cargoes by using TSR. So Korea can participate in the management
of Continental Crossing Route as a main user.
Under the reality of Continental Crossing Rail, it should be checked the propriety of TKR-TSR, and show the strategic method and the goal of shipping market in international transportation market.
The purpose of this study is as shown in the followings.
First, to analyse present position of shipping transportation activated
Second, to analyse the present position of Europe and TSR, and compare to shipping transportation
Third, to analyse the effect affected to society
Fourth, to analyse the problems caused from TKR-TSR and consider the counterplan
This study could be the directions of shipping companies to prepare the changeable market circumstance and make cargoes stable.
The Results of this study are as follows.
First, TKR-TSR seems to be overestimated and the investment is
crucial among countries in order to reach a standard amount.
Second, the development of rail will be influenced to all such as
Shipping, Traffic, Economic, Tour, and the influence of Far East economic bloc will be powerful in the world market.
Third, There are still a lot of obstacles for TKR-TSR in order to make it true, so these will be figured out by international strategic cooperation.
Fourth, shipping companies need to prepare the clear counterplan
for shippers to request the high service quality.
Consequently, it is difficult to set up TKR-TSR compared to all of data and the actual proof, and almost impossible to measure the amount of money to develop the infrastructure of North Korea right now.
However, it is indispensable to make Global Network and international
Inter-modal Transportation of Mutual operating system to prepare
