Client and question: The European Commission, DG MOVE, wishes to promote co-modal transport by improving the flow of information across transport chains.
Result: A consortium, led by BMT (UK), addressed the issue by developing and demonstrating suitable intermodal transport solutions in a range of business cases (demonstrators). The project supports the complex service integration into integrated transport chains, for which the so-called Freightwise Framework was developed. Within the project Mobycon was responsible for the validation of the FREIGHTWISE Framework, including SWOT analysis and impact assessment. In addition, Mobycon developed and applied a common evaluation methodology that was applied across all business cases.
