INTERMODALITY AS A LOW-CARB DIET FOR EUROPE

"Europe needs a low-carb diet". This was one of the statements made at the European Intermodal Summit 2020. It doesn't refer to an actual nutritional value. Instead, it was used by Hupac's CEO Michail Stahlut to refer to the de-carbonisation of transport that constitutes one of the main goals of the intermodal sector in Europe.

The belief in a strong intermodal footprint is now more un-shakable than ever. Even though there is much work ahead to establish such a 'low-carb diet' for Europe, the first steps have already been made, and future seems promising. This was con-cluded during the online edition of the summit, which took place on Tuesday 27 October. The speakers engaged in a constructive dialogue, where they shared insights on the main challenges that the intermodal sector faced and continues facing. Among the addressed issues: infrastructures, sustainability and the modal shift to rail.

"Our aim to increase intermodal transport is a doable objective that we can all share", mentioned Magda Kopczynska (Director of DG Move), while summarising the discussion. Indeed, many of the speakers stretched the importance of a shift towards inter-modal transportation and how Europe can achieve that in the short term. "Intermodal is not as complex as it sounds", said Ralf-Charley Schultze (President-UIRR), meaning that with certain moves and a shared vision, intermodality is a target that can be achieved smoothly.

Past and present challenges

The core scope of the summit directed towards the challenges that the intermodal sector has faced throughout the years. Regar-ding the past, there was a mention of problems such as intercon-tinental connections and oil dependency.

With regards to the present and with an eye to the future, Schul-tze commented that "the future is definitely intermodal". Howe-ver, specific points need to be addressed and resolved. For in-stance, the sector needs to implement sustainable, zero-carbon transport solutions. Besides, there is a need to manage the e-commerce boom, taking place lately, and provide solutions that concern urbanisation and increased population density. Further-more, labour shortage and geographic connectedness are equally important.

"Intermodal is the sustainable solution"

"Intermodality is one of the main pillars of sustainable strate-gies", said Adina-Ioana Valean (Commissioner of Transport), in the opening session of the summit. She also pointed out the criti-cal changes that need to be implemented as soon as possible. These include the reduction of distances in road transport, digiti-sation, more investments in terminal infrastructure, and moderni-sation of the rules in road pricing. On the same tone, Clemens Först ( CEO of Rail Cargo Group) stated that the intermodal sector needs "highly performing infrastructure and fair economic conditions" to develop even more in the future. Livio Ambrogio (President-Ambrogio Intermodal) supported the same point.

Another need that got highlighted during the discussion was that of a standard European policy that will not be discarded by na-tional-scale policies. Specifically, as Peter Kiss (CEO of Me-trans) said, "it is necessary to put down one strategy for everyo-ne". In this way, the shift to intermodal transportation will requi-re less effort and will provide the needed space for a change from trail to rail services. Finally, speakers shared the idea that the implementation of solutions could be more effective if first tried in small and region-scale initiatives.
