D3.3 - Optimising existing and new intermodal rail services
This intermodal supply chain research activity looked at whether the NexTrust horizontal collaboration model could also be applied successfully on the vertical intermodal supply chain.
The results of the research showed that enough critical mass could be bundled leading to an optimisation of the Wenzel company train.
At least around 1,500 FTL shipments per year were converted from the road to the Wenzel company train in several pilot cases and phases. Assuming these activities were to become daily business for Wenzel, it could lead to an increase in the train service frequency to the tune of an additional departure per week - dramatically improving service flexibility for new and existing customers.
