This report examines market power in rail markets in Europe arising from horizontal and vertical mergers in the sector, and was intended to provide a high-level basis for discussion at the Round Table itself. The Round Table reviewed trends in horizontal and vertical integration in logistics businesses, maritime shipping, ports and rail freight transport and examined the circumstances in which integration might reduce the efficiency of the transport system.
