Measures promoting alternatives to the road and intermodal terminals

Based on key developments in freight haulage and the need for action, the aim of this study was to review collaborative measures between road and other modes of transport and governmental measures aimed at promoting intermodal transport. Answering the suggestion about turning the issue into a catalogue of governmental measures, the subgroup recommends several measures to be taken by governments to support intermodal transport. These measures would support the use of intermodal transport and would increase efficiency and improve quality and safety in freight transport overall. The performance of each mode would be improved. This report presents best practice from different continents and nations concerning policies and measures designed to promote intermodal transport. Implementation of a bundle of measures is often more appropriate than implementation of just one single measure.
