RAIL-INTERMODAL OPERATION AND FUEL EFFICIENCY
Over a long-haul, rail is an efficient mode of transportation from an energy as well as cost consideration, whereas trucks are efficient over the short-haul and provide mobility from the point of origin to destination. The integration of services between rail and truck can provide better transportation services to the consumer and can save cost and fuel. This paper deals with this subject area and expands upon the activities being undertaken by "CONRAIL" to enhance intermodal service between the truck and train.
