ROLLING SHELF

Objective

The Rolling Shelf project aims at improving intermodal transport operations for palletised goods and parcels on the short distance.
This project aims at eliminating some of the disadvantages of current rail transport, by offering a fast and economic attractive alternative to road and even air transport resulting in a greater flexibility for the customers.
The Rolling Shelf system is suited for pallet-packed cargo units or pallet-related containers. It can be characterised by a high degree of automated goods transfer, thus ensuring that the transfer costs can be reduced and the efficiency of the overall system increased.
The goal is to gather a share of the current market for high value and sensitive palletised goods, even on short distance transports (about 100 Km). At the moment only a small part of this market is transported by rail.
This project aims at proposing a network of terminals suited for the needs of the Rolling Shelf system, a goods wagon that allows a fast and easy loading and unloading of palletised goods and a telematic solution that enables a fast and easy tracing as well as tracking of the transported goods and a sophisticated way to handle orders and shipments.
Finally it is the purpose of this project to evaluate the economic aspects of the Rolling Shelf system, by valuing the investment for the wagon, the terminals and the logistic telematic system as well as the operation costs. These expenses will be compared with the possible revenues. Ah the same time the minimum service distance will be calculated.
