Intermodal freight-commercial and environmental aspects

Paper, Order, or Assignment Requirements

Introduction
Intermodal freight transport is largely resident in the private (or at least the commercialised)
sector, where profitability is the primary need.
However, the Liverpool2 development (Peel Ports 2016), and the proposed services which will
use it, are predicted also to deliver environmental benefits.
The purpose of this assignment is to appraise the linkage between commercial and
environmental success, with appropriate reference to the experience of the EU’s Marco Polo
programme (EC 2014)
