Combined Transport will be crucial to achieving the so-called “co-modal” approach, in which the different modes of transport shall be considered as a whole, rather than individually. In that respect, rail has the challenge to play the most important role in the ‘Combined Transport’ chain, in order to reduce the share of long-distance road transport by shifting part of it to other lower emission modes, in line with the EU’s transport policy.
The Agency launched a Task Force in November 2017, following a workshop on Combined Transport held in Lille on 13 June 2017, with the aim of drafting a report on the topics to be addressed within the EU legislation and European standardisation on railways; the desirable outcome was to facilitate Combined Transport along the networks of the Union rail system.
The final report on Facilitation of Combined Transport is now available.
