2nd Round Table Meeting of the COSMOS Project conducted in Praha on September 19, 2013, and 2nd Intermodal Road Map completed

The meeting was moderated by COSMOS project manager Uwe Sondermann (KombiConsult, Frankfurt am Main) who concluded the following results which were agreed upon with invited participants:

  • Intermodal or combined (CT) transport in the Czech Republic accounts for 8.2 million net tons in 2012
  • It is dominated by maritime transport (84% of the volume) of the seaports of Bremerhaven/Hamburg, partly Rotterdam and Koper
  • Container transport by barge & RoLa services don´t play a role
  • The growth path of the intermodal transport volume (+250% in last 12 years) could be continued in the years to come (+5% p.a. until 2020) if certain actions are taken by the sector:
    • Shuttle train operation concept - like in the maritime sector - also extended to further continental routes, and linking domestic antennas, e.g. with Moravia region;
    • Coordinated terminal investment and „neutral" access for multi users;
    • Investment into intermodal equipment by road hauliers as their „commitment" potentially supported with another easy-to-use State Aid;
      Training of personal engaged with transport decisions on the merits of intermodal transport.
  • Higher weight for all road vehicles (48 t) is counterproductive for development of (continental) CT, in particular since only minimum incentives (exemption from vehicle tax and weekend driving ban) are applied in addition.
  • Infrastructure investments to remove identified bottlenecks are:
    • Connectivity to RFC/TEN-T network to be improved, since main corridors cover the countries industrial and population centres;
    • Almost all lines with class D4 (22.5 t/axle) and loading profile P/C 78/402, despite one section where options are identified;

As a result of the Round Table and further stakeholder consultation the 2nd Intermodal Road Map, now for Czech Republic, has been elaborated within the time frame of the COSMOS project. The Intermodal Road Map for Czech Republic can be downloaded in the media area.

COSMOS stands for Cooperative Solutions for Managing Optimized Services and is the reply to the market needs for improved cooperative intermodal freight services in South-East Europe. Further Round Table meetings will be organised within the COSMOS project in Czech Re-public, Hungary, Romania, Bulgaria and Croatia in the next 12 months.
