New container handling process results in new intermodal freight transport option

Logistics and Intralogistics Systems

New technical solutions and robotics are also creating new opportunities in container transport. Environmental objectives, reducing CO2 emissions in the freight transport sector, require new solutions. The solution is to increase the share of rail freight transport compared to road freight transport. In parallel with the development of railway capacity (Piraeus - Belgrade - Budapest), the technological solutions to improve the competitiveness of intermodal rail-road freight transport must also be considered. The Loxodon-HCT container handling technology (transshipment robot) has enabled the development of a freight transport model that results in competitive intermodal freight transport in terms of price and time compared to road freight transport, up to 300 km.

Host city and venue - Belgrade

Belgrade is the capital and largest city of Serbia and a city of very tumultuous history. Belgrade was the capital of Yugoslavia from 1918 to 1991. It is located at the confluence of the Sava and Danube rivers, where the Pannonian Plain meets the Balkans. It is one of the oldest cities in Europe and since ancient times it has been an important traffic focal point, an intersection of the roads of Eastern and Western Europe. Read more...
