BSL carries out again the “Report on Combined Transport”

For the fourth time, BSL Transportation Consultants is creating the “Report on Combined Transport”. On behalf of the International Union of Railways UIC and the International Union for Road-Rail Combined Transport UIRR, the bi-annual report provides a comprehensive overview of the current situation of combined transport in Europe.

The 2020 edition compiles up-to-date information on rail/ road combined transport volumes for the year 2019 for all market segments and gathers the market participants’ assessment on market structures and future developments. For this purpose, a market study on combined transport is currently being conducted throughout Europe, in which the main stakeholders in combined transport are surveyed.

A particular focus of the 2020 report lies on intermodal loading units (ILU), which are examined with regard to their use in combined transport, as well as on the presentation of regional disparities between selected regions in Europe.

In addition, the study gives an overview of the role of terminals in the combined transport chain, their capacities and services offered.

The results of the “2020 Report on Combined Transport” are expected to be presented and published by the end of the year.

Further details on combined transport in Europe and the “Reports on Combined Transport” of the past years can be found on the ► website of UIC [] and UIRR [].
