Abstract

Sustainability plays crucial role in today’s competitive environment. Having CSR strategy implemented in the area of production seems to be not enough. Currently companies realized that they could also be competitive by improving their logistics processes i.e. in terms of implementing more eco-friendly transport management. Sustainability in the area of transport activities can occur as replacing road to multimodal modes. However, the multimodal transport is still recognized as complex and problematic solution for many logistics managers. Thus, it is rarely chosen by the companies. These challenges can be met through using technology tools for transport planning and management. One of the available solutions is a part of ChemMultimodal project toolbox – Intermodal Links platform. On such a digital platform companies can easily plan different scenarios for multimodal transport routes within Europe. It could also further serve i.e. for synchromodality as a new competitive solution on logistics services market. The goal of the article is to present Intermodal Links platform as an example of the tool supporting strategic decisions for increasing sustainable transport solutions. Presented results are based on ChemMultimodal Project implementation. The Project is carried out under Interreg Central Europe Programme between 2016 and 2019.
