This book explores the numerous challenges to increase the use of intermodal transport systems in freight transport. In view of the current dominant role of road transport and the increasing difficulties in coping with growing number of vehicles in an efficient and sustainable way, intermodal freight transport could be considered a viable alternative. However, the book makes recognition of the fact that there is still a need to improve the performance of the intermodal transport system.
