Abstract

The European transport policy assumes the growth of intermodal transport utilization within cargo haulage. Systematic increase of cargo weight and performed haulage operations using the concept of intermodal transport has been noticed in Poland. However, its share in total volume of transported goods is still relatively low. One of the main factors supporting or decelerating the intermodal transport development is related to the existing intermodal loading terminals network. Within this field, one must underline not only the number and location but also a series of other parameters that affect the level of the performed terminal-based services. On this basis, the objective of the paper is identification of main features of terminals that are important in view of the development of intermodal transport and to present the condition of Polish loading terminals network from the standpoint of further development of intermodal transport in the country.
