The transport sector generates 10% of EU wealth measured by Gross Domestic Product (GDP), equivalent to about one trillion euro a year. It provides more than ten million jobs. As carriage of goods takes place by roads, rails, sea and airways it comes to bottlenecks and environmental problems. Road haulage now carries 44% of all goods transported in the EU, against 41% for short-sea shipping routes, 8% for rail and 4% for inland waterways. The imbalance is more marked for passenger transport where road (largely car journeys) accounts for 79% against rail’s 6% and 5% for air. It is recognized that transportation by trucks is very convenient and in many cases cannot be replaced by any other means of transport as it performs best door-to-door delivery. Aims of reducing road congestion and air pollution have a lot to do with usage of multimodal transport. Integrating different modes of transport by combining road-rail, sea-rail or rail-air elements would solve many arising problems and develop greater capacities of each type of transport by using the one type which is the best at the specific time.

As there are many definitions of multimodal transport and there are more terms for it as intermodal or combined we assume that these terms are synonymous and their definitions convince it. ...
