Minibridge refers to two or more modes working in tandem--fully coordinated and producing a planned through service usually on a through pricing basis. From the carrier point of view, it may expand the market of either, both, or all the carriers or other transport-oriented participants, which, of course, reflects the stimulus of carrier competition. From the aspect of the shipping public, the minibridge, like its kin, intermodalism, represents a new--and additional-transport option which, in the relatively few minibridge arrangements that exist to date, has proved, according to claims, a very effective technique in meeting some of the demands in transportation.
