Fragmentation of European Continental Transport 2013

  • Today’s intermodal combined transport systems and road transport systems are expensive and consume too much fuel creating an unacceptable level of air pollution
  • This factor as well as cost limitations contribute to a low 6% market penetration of the intermodal rail transport
  • In Europe, intermodal rail/road freight transport is mainly handled in large terminals using overhead cranes and reach-stackers with sequential vertical handling technology
