Integration of Combined Transport into Supply Chain Concepts from a Performance Perspective: Need for Action

Part of the Supply Chain Management book series (SCM)


Combined transport (CT) is increasingly gaining the interest of policymakers, the general public, production and retailing companies as well as third party logistics providers (3PLs). As the combination of rail and road transport, CT is perceived as a feasible approach to deal with changing supply chain performance (SCP) requirements and the latest problems in road transport. Today, supply chain (SC) activities are evaluated not only according to cost, time and quality, but also performance requirements in terms of flexibility, reliability and sustainability.
