At the heart of MultiRELOAD is the concept of multimodality, which involves combining different modes of transportation – rail, road and waterborne. By fostering multimodality, rail terminals and inland ports, as key elements of transnational logistics chains, enhance the resilience and sustainability of the European transport system.

In this sense, the MultiRELOAD demonstrator CBoXX, developed by CargoBeamer, represents a significant advancement in rail transport, specifically tailored for LTL-logistics (Less-Than-Truckload) on rail. This innovative rail transport wagon is designed to maximise efficiency, offering an impressive payload capacity that surpasses a standard 40-foot container by a factor of four. By addressing the need for more efficient cargo transport solutions, the CargoBeamer CBoXX is set to redefine the rail cargo transportation.
