The intermodal sector has made a considerable progress in South-East Europe in the last years:
• Respective Member States have heavily invested in the rail, road and port infrastructure, jointly with private investors;
• The European Union has implemented the regulations 1315 and 1316/2013 setting the scene for a true European multimodal core network by 2030 and the Connecting Europe Facility is committing further financial aid for the sector;
• Railways, intermodal operators and logistics service providers have created new business models to expanding their services to their customer’s requirements.
Nevertheless, the sector is challenged by reduced growth rates after the World’s financial crisis, competition between different corridor routings, flexibility of the road sector to respond to regulatory or market changes faster than the traditional railways can do.
Against that background the six Round Tables performed in the scope of the COSMOS project in Slovenia, Czech Republic, Hungary, Romania, Bulgaria and Croatia, have also demonstrated the large potential of the sector and its innovative actors who are prepared for the future needs.
