Abstract

Aim of the project “TelliBox - Intelligent MegaSwapBoxes for advanced intermodal freight transport” has been to develop and prototype a new intermodal loading unit by an international consortium. This new 45 feet long intermodal loading unit is applicable to be transported on road, rail, short sea and inland waterways. It combines the advantages of currently available loading units, e.g. flexibility and safety of containers, loading facilities and internal cargo dimensions of semitrailers and the effective use of loading areas of swap-bodies, in one sustainable loading unit solution. The efficient and successful usage of this new solution has been also verified on a demonstration trial within an European automotive industry transport corridor.
