Combined Transportation – Advantages


Combined transportation –the shipment of goods in one and the same transportation unit using more than one carrier –offers significant advantages. Only the short front end and back end is handled by road-based truck traffic while the main run, which accounts for most of the distance, is on the rails.


But combined rail / road transportation also offers ecological benefits in addition to economical advantages:


  • Increased tonnage limit for the front and back end to and from the terminals
  • Exemption from weekend, holiday and night driving restrictions
  • Quick delivery from the terminal to the customer (storage)
