Intermodality

Intermodality

Intermodality – the connection of different transport channels – is increasingly been seen as one solution to the challenge of creating a sustainable and uncongested European transport network. ACI EUROPE shares these hopes, but also sees a need for a considered, reflective approach towards the issue. Free market competition between different transport modes should not be interfered with lightly, and the impact of intermodality may vary significantly at different airport types. Finally, the capacity and economic limitations of rail must be accepted and factored into future intermodal strategic plans.
