Intermodal Transports of Non-Durable Consumer Products

Non-durable consumer products are transported primarily by road over long distances, on journeys which are broken when the goods arrive at terminals or reloading facilities. Despite a concentration on a smaller number of terminals, the share of products carried by rail or intermodal solutions has fallen. The study shows that new common transport solutions are of great interest, but that organizational and technical obstacles must be overcome. Further studies are expected to show that there are a number of flows of non-durable consumer products which, together with other high-processed goods, could create the basis for new coordinated intermodal transport solutions.
