Combined (Intermodal) Transport Market in Poland in 1993-2009

Leszek Mindur


From the early 90s combined transportation (based on standardized transportation and transshipment technologies) hasn't exceeded 3,5%2 of overall weight of loads transferred by railway in Poland. During the same period the share of that type of transport in overall railway transfers in European Union countries has made up from 10 to 20% and has a tendency to grow systematically. At the same time it should be emphasized that intermodal transportation in Poland has mainly resulted from the requirements of foreign contractors moving their freight in standardized unit loads. The scale of container transport is not large in the internal transport.
