    Abstract

    El presente trabajo analiza el empleo del ferrocarril por parte de las empresas gallegas que transaccionan con operadores del Norte de Portugal. Demostramos el uso residual de dicha infraestructura (0,01% de las transacciones totales) frente al empleo masivo del camión, determinamos factores explicativos de la elección modal y de la eventual substitución camión versus ferrocarril. El estudio estadístico incluye como universo empresas representativas de los sectores industriales y las principales consignatarias de líneas regulares del puerto de Vigo. Proponemos un modelo formativo de ecuaciones estructurales y una regresión lineal explicativos de la elección modal y de la incidencia de ésta sobre la referida substitución. Concluimos que tanto empresas como operadores logísticos (siendo estos últimos más sensibles al cambio) valoran la necesidad de mejorar las infraestructuras en el enlace comentado, si bien consideran prioritaria la liberalización real del mercado de operadores ferroviarios, sin ella la mejora anterior no afectaría significativamente a la elección modal. / This work analyzes the use of the train by the Galician companies when they do business transactions with northern Portuguese operators. The residual usage of this infrastructure (0.01 of all the transactions) is proved opposite the masive use of the truck; factors that explain the choice and the possible truck-versus-train replacement are established. The statistical study includes representative industrial companies and the main consignees of regular lines in the port of Vigo as spectrum. A formative explained structural equation model and a linear regression of the modal choice and its effect on the referred replacement are suggested. As conclusion, the need of improvement of the infrastructures in the connection mentioned above is assessed by companies and logistic operators (these last ones are more interested in changing) although the real liberalization of the rail operators market is a priority as without this, the improvement mentioned above would not affect the modal choice significantly.
