Pressure on more sustainable transport and increased congestion provide
opportunities for intermodal transport, but it suffers from unreliable transport times due to a lack of coordination at the operational level. Synchromodal transport can mitigate this effect by taking an integral perspective. It appears that the majority of research to date has focused on the technical and operational challenges of synchromodal transport such as planning and supporting IT systems and platforms.
In this article, a synchromodal maturity model has been applied to 41 cases to gauge the current state of synchromodal transport from a complete perspective.
