CBS is part of Scandria2Act work-packages three “Multi-modal Transport”. Here CBS seeks to map, understand and capitalise on the benefits obtained through multimodal partnerships, including partnerships between port authorities and shipping companies, and between shipping and rail companies. CBS conducted four case studies with companies that are trying to improve their multimodal collaborations. Each case includes a short introduction followed by an analysis of a selection of collaborative relationships. The analysis identifies characteristics, opportunities and challenges of different business models for partnerships in the multimodal transport industry.

"Many of the challenges in the multimodal industry can be traced to complex and siloed train and railway systems across Europe. Different standards for rail tracks and train systems generate massive barriers for creating efficient and effective multimodal business models. The bottom line is that train transport in Europe has to become more efficient in order for companies and more people to use it." says Dr. Luise Noring, Research Director of Sustainable Urbanisation Team.
