TelliSys – An Innovative Intermodal Transport System

To achieve a sustainable mobility, the European Commission recommends optimizing the transport system through multimodal logistic chains. The project TelliSys develops an innovative intermodal transport system with the aim to promote an efficient transport by providing smooth transition between different modes of transport. The outcomes of TelliSys will be a modular “family” of volume-optimised loading units for intermodal traffic, so called MegaSwapBoxes (MSB), as well as an adapted semi-trailer for intermodal loading units and an innovative low deck tractor for volume transport. This paper presents this challenging project and submits the first results obtained in the analysis and concept phases, including the programme vision and the conceptual design of the MegaSwapBox, the Trailer-Chassis and the Low Deck Tractor.
