This article aims to find the determinants of mode choice decisions for Spanish full lorry and full container loads shipments to the rest of Europe in four productive sectors: agroindustry, ceramic tiles, motor vehicle parts and household appliances. To this end exhaustive fieldwork was carried out and a database constructed, including 507 observations collected from transport decision-makers. A binary logit is used to estimate a modal choice model where the two modes considered are road transport and Short-Sea Shipping. The estimation of the model stresses the importance of a politico-economic evaluation of how to modify the modal split, paying particular attention to the role that can be attributed to a series of variables going beyond cost and time, which address the increasing complexity of sectorial logistics chains.
