“Every year 200,000 additional truck loads (equating to a 150 Million miles), are driven unnecessarily to move goods across land in the UK.” – Source: imeche.org
The advantages of rail freight for many flows are well established and there is still enormous potential for increased use of rail in the transportation of general goods.
However, there is effectively no joined-up ‘spot’ market for intermodal freight, which is typically seen as complex and inflexible. So, there is a clear case for intelligent freight matching solutions, to link rail freight capacity, shipper needs and road carriers to and from railheads.
The key is for systems that allow train operators to offer, and shippers to find, spare capacity. And for shippers to be able to book the appropriate road legs as part of the same process so that the total journey cost and/or time can be optimised.
Pioneered by TGMatrix, an intelligent, automated freight matching system is the solution that could make road/rail intermodal freight a reality far sooner than you may think…..
