MultiRELOAD will develop innovative multimodal freight business models removing legal, regulatory, and contractual barriers to uptake of demonstrated solutions. MultiRELOAD has a particular focus on defining and demonstrating how the business models for the three interconnected freight nodes as part of the Corridor Management System can be expanded to entire TEN-T networks. As part of this work, MultiRELOAD will develop policy recommendations and address the resilience and security of data and management systems,
including security against malicious or accidental interventions (WP5).
currently, missing standards and legal constraints pose a barrier to the better interaction between different loading units and between different transport modes. Innovative business models will need to enhance interoperability and ensure compatibility with existing technologies, services and legacy systems in order to enable quick replication and market uptake throughout Europe. Barriers such as missing standards and acceptance, competences, high costs, as well as gaps in the regulatory frameworks therefore need to be overcome
The FOR-FREIGHT project aims to maximize the utilization of multimodal freight transport capacity and reduce the average cost of freight transport through the development of novel solutions and their integration with legacy logistics systems.
