The EIRAC Strategic Intermodal Research Agenda provides an overview of innovation needed in intermodal transport until 2020. Intermodal transport is defined as “the movement of goods in one and the same loading unit or road vehicle, which uses successively two or more modes of transport, without moving the goods themselves in changing modes” . The intermodal industry faces specific challenges of interoperability, logistics, security, socio-economic and education. The SIRA addresses all these challenges. The goal is to develop intermodal transport as an important part of the sustainable transport system. Intermodal transport then becomes a high quality service, which is seamless, reliable, available, accessible, secure, sustainable, accountable, and affordable.
