THE ROLE AND FUNCTIONS OF MULTIMODAL LOGISTIC PLATFORMS

The intervention, or role and functions of multimodal logistic platforms, will develop on the following guidelines: the diverse experiences carried out in Europe in logistic platform planning, construction and management; limits of the TEN (Trans European Network) approach restricted to the mere connection of transport axes; freight (and related logistics services) as the key element in the assessment of a European transport strategy; the multimodal logistic platform as the basis for rational integration of logistics services and transport systems; examples of the contribution given by integrated logistic platforms to the development of intermodality; setting up of services provided for logistics operations and transport enterprises based on a multimodal logistic platform; and determining which criteria should be adopted to promote a European network of multimodal logistic platforms.
