Work Package 7
Technology driven business cases

Responsible partners: Kombiverkehr / RCA AG / OZV

Based on the results of the TREND Project and the input of the CREAM stakeholders, three market segments have been identified in the conception phase of CREAM as of particularly high potential. Research Activity 7 is dedicated to the elaboration of concepts for capturing modal shift potentials of the transport market where up to now the Intermodal Transport was not capable to gain significant market shares from the road. In order to respond to this market demand three technology driven business cases will be developed within RA 7:

  • RA 7.1 - Temperature controlled cargo logistics (TCC)
  • RA 7.2 - Semi-trailers in unaccompanied intermodal transport chains
  • RA 7.3 - Customised semi-trailer for unaccompanied intermodal transport of glass

Work Progress WP 7

The results of the related research activities are compiled in the deliverables DR 7.1, DR 7.2 and DR 7.3, which are all confidential.

The CREAM-Newsletter, Issue 2 from May 2008 (page 1; May-News) and Issue 3 from September 2008 (page 4) informed about the status of WP 7.1 "Temperature controlled cargo". Publishable results are included in the Final Report on page 82-91: "String of Pearls network of open intermodal rail services".

The CREAM-Newsletter, Issue 3 from September 2008 (page 3) informed on the status of WP 7.2. Publishable results are included in the Final Report on page 72-75: "Innovative transhipment system for conventional semi-trailers ISU".
