Intermodal transport is one of the driving forces of rail transportation. Since 2009, the International Union of Railways (UIC) led several specific studies on this topic in the context of its DIOMIS project (Developing Infrastructure and Operating Models for Intermodal Shift). In 2008, "Agenda 2015 for Combined Transport in Europe" was published. The report high-lighted the role and responsibilities of all actors in the chain in order to grow this business but mainly focused on Central Europe. It was thus felt necessary to widen the geographic scope to carry out an in depth study of rail/road traffic in Central and Eastern European Countries.
