ABSTRACT

The technological solutions for the horizontal transshipment of non-liftable semi-trailers allow the decision makers in the transport market to consider an additional transport alternative to road transportation in the mode choice decision: combined transport. This paper describes the status of the development of the combined transport of the non-cranable semi-trailers via horizontal transshipment solutions in Europe compared with Russia, where a lower market penetration ratio is registered. The prospects for the development of the combined transport with the horizontal transshipment technologiesin the Russian market as well as the major obstacles are presented. The significant market potential for the combined transport of the semi-trailers in Russia is observed. The results can be used as a decision support by government officials for the configuration of their specific transport policies as well as by logistics service providers to adjust their technology investment decisions.
