Six principles for operation of the rail part of intermodal rail freight transport systems are described:
direct link, corridor, hub-and-spoke, connected hubs, static routes, and dynamic routes. The first part is a
theoretical discussion of the characteristics of the transport network designs. The theory is then applied to
intermodal freight transport by analysing how each transport network design affects the need for terminal
performance. The discussion includes a classification of existing transfer technologies and an analysis of
how well developed technologies meet the demands. It is concluded that there is a sufficient supply of
technologies, but some need to be taken further than the current blueprint phase and prove their viability
in technical and economic terms.
