The results published in this AGENDA 2015 FOR COMBINED TRANSPORT IN EUROPE constituted a call for action for all the decision makers of the stakeholders, including national and supranational authorities and port authorities. The ambition of AGENDA 2015 is to become an integral part of their respective strategies. The second phase of DIOMIS, covering 2008-9, has ensured the full dissemination of AGENDA 2015 and updated the overall detailed report on Combined Transport (CT). Most importantly, it expanded to a number of Central and Eastern European Countries (CEEC) the geographical scope and the investigation methods of DIOMIS. The countries investigated in the course of this second phase were Bulgaria, Croatia, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, and Slovenia. For each of these countries, the team identified the current situation of CT, its challenges and prospects, the prospective capacities of the railway infrastructure and of the CT terminals, and the related investment plans and needs. The impact of the current recession, that is hitting hard some of the countries involved, was also taken into account.
