Heiland, Martin; Kämmerer, Grit; Winter, Mareen
The transport within the Rail Baltica corridor is dominated by truck. By using an information system shifting of freight transport from road to rail can be supported.
The Ministry of Infrastructure and Agriculture Brandenburg (MIL) in Germany published an internet portal enabling a search for transshipment points in Brandenburg, developed by IPG. The so-called internet based “Intermodal Node Information System – INIS” offers users in economy, politics and administration a comprehensive overview of the access to the railway system via transshipment points. Within the EU Project “Rail Baltica Growth Corridor” the existing intermodal node information system is going to be extended to the area of Rail Baltica in Germany, Poland, Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia and Finland.
