Abstract

The adequacy of existing transport infrastructure to four distinct clusters in Austria’s key regions is tested by examining the willingness of logistics managers to pay for additional service improvements. Findings show an overall willingness to pay for multiple service improvements; this reveals a general dissatisfaction with current shipping options, regardless of transport mode, where rail-mode services – ‘Bahn’ – provoke the greatest dissatisfaction. Willingness to pay for improvements generally increases by degrees of regional EU remoteness and relative youth of cluster industries, as hypothesised from Schumpeterian assumptions concerning infrastructure innovation.
