Combined Transport – intermodal transport
The combined transport (CT) is getting more and more attention especially inside Europe. The target is to combine different modes of transport together to achieve the most efficient transport to the end customer. This might be by combination of truck and rail or barge and truck (also look at UN/ECE in 2001).
What are the upcoming challenges with the CT?
Does this require more integration on the IT side as well?
What is the effect of the new silk road for the CT?
