An Intelligent Transport System for Intermodal Freight Transport

To deal with the challenges of modern transport the European Commission recommends optimizing the performance of multimodal logistic chains. In this regard, the EU project TelliSys aims to develop, build and test an intelligent intermodal transport system. The system consists of a modular set of volume-optimized and trackable/traceable MegaSwapBoxes (MSB), a supporting trailer as well as a low deck tractor for road transport. The first steps of the project include an analysis phase and the development of design concepts for the MSB, the trailer and the low deck tractor. In order to elicit the requirements for TelliSys, the analysis phase includes an extensive market analysis and interviews with several lead users. The first results of the analysis phase as well as a glimpse at the design concepts of the modular MSB, the trailer and the low deck tractor are presented in this paper .
