CORPORATE PARTNERSHIP BOARD NEWSLETTER
November 2018
of the International Transport Forum

Dear Members of the Corporate Partnership Board,

Welcome to the second edition of our Corporate Partnership Board (CPB) Newsletter!
 
In this edition, we focus on our recent participation at the ITS World Congress, highlight CPB member company visits to ITF and discuss the projects that are underway and the forthcoming workshops in December.
 
Many of you have spoken over the years about engaging more on the topic of Women in Mobility. In this newsletter you will see a recent compendium that has been released by the ITF, to which many CPB members contributed, on the topic Women's Safety and Security. 
 
I look forward to seeing many of you in Seoul at our next CPB meeting, where, as well as our own CPB meeting, we will also have a joint meeting with our member countries at which we will discuss the topic of regulation for shared mobility and for-hire services.
 
Again, we encourage you to spread the word about the work we are doing together. Your colleagues are welcome to sign up to our newsletter by clicking on this link. We also invite you to share CPB news with your social media network using the new CPB hashtag #ITF_Corporate.
 
We hope you have a pleasant read!
 
Kind Regards,
 
Sharon Masterson
Manager, Corporate Partnership Board
The International Transport Forum participated in the ITS World Summit in Copenhagen from 17-21 September. Secretary-General Young Tae Kim and Sharon Masterson, Manager Corporate Partnership Board, participated in the High-Level Roundtable in the ministers and industry streams, presenting the work of the International Transport Forum and the Corporate Partnership Board. They also participated in the Mobility as a Service 4th Annual Summit, organised by Ertico, the European Commission and the Finnish Ministry of Transport and Communications. Philippe Crist participated as a speaker in sessions focusing on blockchain and logistics.
In honour of International Women’s Day, inspired by discussions with many of you at the CPB Plenary in Riga, and noting that this is an important topic for most of your companies, we will be hosting a “Women in Mobility” event at the OECD in Paris on International Women’s Day, 8 March 2019.
 
The scope of the event is still taking shape and we’d like your help in making it yours! This may include specific themes, guest speakers, or suggestions for the general format. Share your vision and ideas with us by writing to Sharon Masterson with cc to Hilary Gaboriau
 
Please mark your calendars and plan on joining us on 8 March 2019!
 
Women's Safety and Security

This compendium, now available on the ITF website, assembles voices from the transport sector on the critical issue of safety for women in public transport and transport more generally. Surveys show that most women who use public transport feel exposed to physical or verbal aggression, sexual harassment and other forms of violence or unwelcome behavior, leading to personal stress and physical harm. As women rely on public transport for access to employment, education and other public services, making it hard for them to be mobile also reinforces inequality.

For the compilation of this compendium, we reached out to you, the members of the CPB, for your contributions. We are happy that a number of you participated in this publication and hope you enjoy the read.
As you know, the CPB projects are now underway. We just completed the workshop for Transport Innovation in Emerging Economies – Insights for Global Transport Authorities and Companies. The day-and-a-half workshop was held at the prestigious Harvard Faculty Club in Cambridge, Massachusetts, led by ITF’s Katja Schechtner and chaired by MIT’s Andres Sevtsuk. Many CPB members were present and we thank you for the expertise and insights you brought to the discussions and the break-out sessions.
 
We will soon be sending out the workshop presentations and summary to the participants and the CPB members who have signed up for the project’s mailing list. Keep an eye out for it!

Maritime transport currently represents around 2.5% of total global greenhouse gas emissions. Emissions from shipping could more than double by 2050 without additional policy measures. Full decarbonisation of shipping is possible but cannot be reached without a transition towards alternative fuels. This workshop will gather policy makers, IGOs, ship owners, shippers, port authorities, NGOs, researchers, and other key stakeholders to interact, share knowledge on best practice and identify next steps.
 
If you are interested in being part of the discussion, please register for the workshop here.

Connectivity and City Clusters: Summary and Conclusions
This report presents international experience and lessons learned from integrated transport development in large-scale urban regions and city clusters. It serves as an input to discussions around city cluster development in China and other emerging economies. First, it assesses how regional urbanisation delivers socio-economic benefits via both agglomeration and network externalities. It then examines differences in how these benefits are delivered in single versus clustered city networks. The role of governance structures and how they might best be adapted to ensure positive outcomes is also discussed. Finally, the report addresses the potential for reforming local government financing mechanisms in China in order to guide urban growth in a sustainable manner.

Surface Access to Airports: The Case of Mexico City's New International Airport
The success of Mexico City’s New International Airport will depend not least on the quality of access to the airport on the ground. This report reviews policies and planning controls for surface access at a selection of comparable airports in cities of OECD countries. It offers input for the Mexican Federal Government’s plans for infrastructure investments that will serve passengers, the airport workforce and the public by ensuring convenient, reliable airport journeys; supporting business travel for a productive Mexican economy; and by maintaining within acceptable bounds the airport’s impact on road congestion and related air pollution.

Risk Allocation in Mega-Projects in Denmark

This paper uses three Danish-Swedish-German transport infrastructure mega-projects - the Storebælt, Øresund and Femern Belt links - as a case study to examine risk allocation between owners and contractors. It highlights the evolution of the approach to risk allocation over time and how the projects deal with uncertainty. The paper is part of a series of 19 papers and a synthesis report produced by the International Transport Forum’s Working Group on Private Investment in Transport Infrastructure.


Roundtable: Balancing Efficiency and Resilience in Management of Multi-modal Supply Chains

Collaboration in Supply Chain Management: A Resilience Perspective

This paper investigates how collaboration between stakeholders can help make supply chains more resilient. It explores innovative ways to operate supply chains and reinforce their resilience, for instance through crowd shipping or gainsharing. The paper also includes a case study on how multi-stakeholder initiatives and public-private partnership can help foster collaboration in supply chains for increased efficiency.


Balancing Efficiency and Resilience in Multimodal Supply Chains (RT Summary and Conclusions)

This report examines how efficiency and resilience can be balanced in the management of multi-modal supply chains. It investigates the trade-off between supply chain resilience and efficiency, the approaches to sustainability in supply chain management, innovation and technological development, collaboration and alliances and risk mitigation. The report summarises findings from an ITF Roundtable held in April 2018.

 

Roundtable: Social Impacts of Time and Space-Based Road Pricing

The Social Impacts of Road Pricing (RT Summary and Conclusions)

This report assesses how road pricing impacts are distributed amongst citizens. It specifically examines how the reallocation of road space can improve the wellbeing of the community at large, looks at the relationship between road tolling and public transport pricing, and explores how simulation models can help develop measures to minimise negative impacts of road pricing. It also reviews current road pricing schemes in Sweden and Singapore. The report summarises the findings of an ITF Roundtable held in Auckland, New Zealand, in December 2017 that brought together 18 experts from eight countries.

 

Long-Term Effects of the Swedish Congestion Charges (RT Discussion Paper)

This paper summarises the state of research on the long-term effects of congestion charging in Stockholm and Gothenberg. Sweden’s two largest cities introduced time-of-day dependent, cordon-based congestion charging systems in 2006 and 2013. Public support for congestion charging initially increased following the introduction, but then slightly declined after a revision of the systems. While travel demand in Stockholm has become more price sensitive over time, the reverse happened in Gothenburg. The study examines the reasons behind these findings and discusses policy implications.

 

Assessing the Net Overall Distributive Effect of a Congestion Charge (RT Discussion Paper)

This paper offers new insights into the definition, measurement and operationalisation of different dimensions of social vulnerability to road user charges, using unique data sets available in the UK. Assessing distributional effects of road pricing or congestion charging schemes requires evaluating distributional patterns: who receives the benefits of reduced congestion and who receives the revenues collected? How these impacts change over time also needs consideration.

 

Reforming Private and Public Urban Transport Pricing

This paper examines the optimal level of public transport pricing in metropolitan areas, using Stockholm and Paris as case studies. It shows that overall welfare improves if public transport prices are increased during peak hours to balance demand and fund additional services in the peak. This report considers the sources of welfare improvements and compares the effect of such pricing policy on cities with and without road pricing.
