The transport of dangerous goods in combined transport rail-road is a complex issue. The recent information has been summarized in a small brochure for daily use in the framework of the DESTINY project. The brochure is available in several languages on the project's website. The information is also relevant for intermodal terminals so that KombiConsult publishes the brochure also on this AGORA website.
The information included in the brochure provides practical information but can under no circumstanzes replace the consultation of the respective legal framework in case of doubt.
DESTINY which stands for DEployment of STandards for INtermodal efficiency is a co-funded project under the umbrella of the MarcoPolo programme of the European Commission, aims to provide a common learning action to improve efficiency in the intermodal transport chain.
The project, which starts on September 1, 2012 and will end August 31, 2014 is developed by a consortium of 8 partners, and relies on the official support of 15 associations operating in the intermodal transport sector.
DESTINY seeks to deploy best practices in the implementation of existing standards related to the identification, marking and codification of ILUs, load securing and handling dangerous goods.
The ultimate goal is to enhance the competitiveness of European intermodal transport and thus contribute to develop greener modes of transport as an alternative to pure-road freight transport in Europe.
KombiConsult GmbH, Frankfurt am Main, provides advise to the intermodal world, performs the secretariat for the AGORA Working Group of Intermodal Terminals and participates in DESTINY-Project.
