IRU Position on intermodal loading units, (2004)
The IRU supports the European Commission's efforts to increase the competitiveness of intermodal freight transport by promoting the efficient use of intermodal loading units. However, the development of intermodal transport should be sustainable, it should have a correct price/quality ratio and the choice of mode should be market-driven. In the case of the 2004 Commission proposal for a Directive, the IRU is of the opinion that these three requirements are not met and the proposal therefore provides no value-added solutions for intermodal users.
