Making PROFIT at the Intermodal Terminal - A Research Agenda

Abstract : Intermodality has been a hot topic in the logistics sector for several decades, but the expected diffusion into business is still limited. The key to increased intermodalism lies at the intermodal terminal. This paper puts forward four literature-based propositions that should be part of the future research agenda for intermodal terminals. In order to realise the intermodal terminal of the future, there is a need to: (P1) develop an effective operative terminal system, (P2) develop a holistic performance measurement system for the terminal, (P3) develop cooperation models for the network actors, and (P4) develop new value increasing services at the terminal.
