Abstract
Transportation has two sides like a coin. First, it is an indispensable element for a national economy. The evolution of transport has given much benefit to it. It must be one of the principal factors in nation?s economic and social development. In this context, Korea has been focused on the transport policy and developed many strategies for the powerful logistics country. However, transport also causes many problems. And its benefits come along environmental damage, accidents-injuries and death-, congestion, noise, and energy dependence. And nowadays the one of the most concern about world problems is environment pollution. Transport makes impact to not only global environment but people directly and indirectly. In other words, transport is also recognized as a problem sector for the numerous impacts on health and the environment. Therefore, this study is concerned with how to lower the rate of road transportation for export and import container cargoes in Korea. In particular, higher rate of road transportation causes externals costs. This should be considered in dealing with modal split issues. This study is also aims to measure and estimate the external costs. This study describes a methodology for estimating and calculating external costs of air pollution, clim
