This publication presents a synthesis of findings of a broad, 3-year research program on promising innovative directions for bundling networks and new generation terminals. This report assesses the major problems of implementation of some new-generation intermodal terminals. Those new-generation terminals according to earlier research seem to be promising, but are not being implemented, yet. Contents include: towards improved intermodal freight transport, innovative networks and the advantages of new-generation terminals, networks and terminals, technological and operational aspects of new-generation terminals, economic feasibility of new-generation terminals, from promising concepts to implementation, conclusions and recommendations.
