Benefits of the Combined Transport

Combined Transport presents a range of benefits. It contributes towards a better quality of life and proposes a seamless transport solution in order to improve the productivity of the entire chain. The main benefits of combined transport can be summarised as follows:

  • Friendly towards the environment: on routes where volumes can be bundled and distance is appropriate, combined transport provides substantial energy gains and lower CO2 emissions
  • Friendly towards society: reduces accidents, road congestion and dependency on energy reserves
  • It allows for a better use of existing capacity
  • It combines the flexibility of road with the economies of rail on long journeys for large volumes
  • It is well integrated in the logistics chain
  • It is safe and secure: reduce risk for goods during the transport journey
