INtegration of interoperable intermodal HOrizontal TRAnshipment techniques in intermodal transport operations

Objective

The proposal aims at promotion of specific transfer technologies in intermodal transport. By this improved systems, the transfer of loading units between different modes shall be executed with less costs and improved reliability. Furthermore, new operational approaches in road-rail intermodal transport are introduced by such horizontal transfer technologies, mainly the possibility to organise economic road-rail transport on shorter distances. Furthermore the integration of such systems in existing operational systems shall be examined. The influence of these technologies on the design of current intermodal transport equipment and loading units will be furthermore evaluated. Additional recommendations will be given on how intermodal policy can support such systems
