Abstract: 
In this paper we present preliminary evidence from a pilot study carried out with the primary objective
of testing the validity of adaptive conjoint data collecting methods in analysing operators’ preferences
when redirecting current on-land transport services to a hypothetical maritime ro-ro service alternative.
The analysis has focussed on a sample of freight forwarders. Through a combination of Revealed
Preferences and Adaptive Stated Preference Experiments we have constructed a database of their
preferences’ toward the maritime ro-ro alternative using a set of transport service attributes: price,
reliability, frequency, transit time, etc. We have estimated the relevant parameters through a Tobit model
and have been able to calculate relative trade-off values among the significant attributes. The resulting
ranking highlights the relative importance of reliability and frequency in the decision to switch to
maritime services.
