Abstract
In their search to optimize the utilization of high-speed rail systems governments and railway companies may benefit from good practices in the rest of the world. Benchmarking of these systems in operation may give guidance to best practices in this sector to learn from. This study was initiated as, to our knowledge, no objective comparison of high-speed rail systems is available. Based on the current knowledge and experience, Network Data Envelopment Analysis (NDEA) in combination with the Malmquist Productivity Index was chosen for the benchmark. Four Asian and four European high-speed rail systems are compared using the actual system characteristics and performance between 2007 and 2012. To investigate the production efficiency and service effectiveness of the high-speed railways under study, a performance matrix is introduced. This study identifies the most efficient high-speed rail systems and the contributing factors in achieving high performance in production and marketing. It reveals significant differences between Asia and Europe, but also within these regions remarkable differences are found. (C) 2015 The Authors. Published by Elsevier B.V.
