The Department for Transport provides incentives to encourage the transfer of freight from road to rail and water where the cost is higher than road and where there are environmental benefits to be gained.

Grants towards the operating costs of running rail and water freight services are provided through the Mode Shift Revenue Support and Waterborne Freight Grant schemes.
