Intermodal transport in Poland in 2016

Languages of publication
Nowadays intermodal transport is the foundation of international trade. In contrast to traditional transport, this transport seeks to combine various services and resources, thus contributing to the improvement of the entire distribution process. The basis of the interchangeable method for limiting the consequences of road transport is, as far as possible, intermodal transport. However, it should be noted that the implementation of the described system requires not only direct connection of each branch of transport, excellent knowledge of strengths and shortcomings, but also proposing more effective financial solutions and a better level of services. It is important that intermodal transport may play an important role in the exploitation of trade, as well as transit transport through Poland. In 2016, 35 active terminals were located in Poland: 28 of them are road terminals that served rail - road, while 7 other terminals were sea terminals that served sea - road and sea - rail.
