Chapter 1 sketches the economic and operational context in which the development of the European Union’s transport policy has taken place since the late 1980s. It provides data on the evolution of the different transport modes, and describes the historical context in which the European Union became involved in this subject and gradually came to deal with a wide range of subjects that eventually became a comprehensive regulatory framework. It puts transport in the perspective of the completion of the EU Internal Market, with its three strands of service liberalization, network integration, and—linking them—the harmonization of nationally differentiated regulatory frameworks.
