Development and testing of logistics concepts for new intermodal services – OEM freight liner train
Background of the pilot action
Intermodal transport chains, which are much more environmentally friendly compared to road transport, are much underdeveloped along the Orient/East-Med TEN-T corridor. Moreover, the availability of intermodal transport equipment shall be increased by the establishment of new intermodal transport chains. All together the awareness of Central and South-Eastern European member states regarding intermodality shall be raised, followed by political commitments with dedicated actions in their future transport policy.
Description of the pilot action
The pilot action is based in the first run on a comprehensive desk research identifying potential and high capacity source regions for successful new intermodal transport chains. Afterwards discussions with potential users and relevant market players from the operational and organisational sector will follow. A basic structure of the logistics product with information about prices and lead times will be finetuned step by step with all involved stakeholders.
