The presence of the non-sharable, common and joint costs also transport heterogeneous output expressed in different sort and attributes of transport services, there are the key drivers underlying economies of scope in transport activities. In transport one may distinguish scope economies arising from common and/or joint operation of transport facilities (e.g. transport means, transshipment equipment), transport infrastructure and transportation networks and its enhanced integrity.
