10 Integrated Solutions for the intermodal transport

11 INTERMODAL TRANSPORT PHYSICAL NETWORK SERVICE NETWORK

12 What is an intermodal bottleneck? An intermodal bottleneck is an actual or perceived negative characteristic of an intermodal door-to-door transport chain that makes intermodal transport less attractive than unimodal transport.

13 Where are intermodal bottlenecks located? Terminal 1 Border crossing Intermodal Terminal 2 Border crossing Origin Terminal Unimodal Destination Terminal

14 Recommendations to remove bottlenecks Increase capacity of terminals Transport infrastructures for better access of terminals Investments in modern standardised intermodal equipment Harmonization of opening hours Harmonization of loading units Measures towards concentration of intermodal rail transport on a limited number of international transport corridors

15 Further recommendations Overcome mental bottlenecks Consideration of external costs for fair prices Implementation of new handling procedures Introduction of European-wide transport tariffs Improved border procedures for intermodal transport Consideration of intermodal transport in technical, operational and administrative procedures Introduction of one-stop-shops for intermodal transport
