    Modal shift from road to other modes is a major challenge for European transport policy in respect to sustainable development. The share of road haulage has been increasing despite strong political action. The explanation of this trend can be sought in the organization of production process which determines the demand for transport. The industrial fabric and the modes of production in post-fordist economies generate fragmented flows that foster road haulage. The problem of modal disequilibrium originates in the very structure of economy. The results of two shipper surveys « Chargeurs 1988 » and « ECHO 2004 » carried out in France at a national level provide useful data for our research.
