QUATTRE MAINS INTERMODAL

Objective

The main objective of Quatre Mains Intermodal (QMI) is to develop decision support tools for:

- the development of economic regions towards regions with a high potential for economic and logistic activities (economic-logistic transfer regions), closely connected towards present and future qualitative improvements of the (intermodal) transport network.

- the development of corporate business strategies - per segment - towards the potentials of redesigned industrial logistics related to the quality of the network and the optimal exploitation of possibilities offered by economic-logistic transfer regions.

Dissemination of the project results and the decision support tools aim for a better, more efficient use of the existing capacity of European infrastructure by regions and industries. The main project results and basic support tools will also be made available via the internet /electronic highway.
