From Scratch: Assistance in the planning, funding and operation of intermodal terminals
Several Customers | 2001 – Today
Intermodal terminals are the hubs of combined transport, which is becoming increasingly important in European land transport and seaport-hinterland transport. Since the growth in freight traffic can no longer be accommodated by the road infrastructure, efficient rail freight and inland waterway systems are needed. Consequently, efficient intermodal terminals are an essential part of sustainable transport policy.
What do we offer?
We offer a complete package of consultancy services on the development, financing and management of intermodal terminals.
- Location and market studies
- Dimensioning, layout development, variant comparison

KombiConsult can refer to a large number of terminal projects for various clients. We also have an extensive network of terminal managers and have also initiated a working group called AGORA, in which terminal managers regularly exchange ideas. Over the years, terminal operators have developed and shared a variety of “good practices” on how to improve service quality and the efficiency of intermodal terminals.
