Synchromodality during emergency situations

Use of multiple modes

Because of rail subsidence in the German city of Rastatt (August-September 2017), rail transport to Italy was severely disrupted. Only a limited number of trains, however, could be diverted via alternative routes. Move Intermodal increased the capacity by utilizing coasters going to Basel and connecting them thereafter with rail tracks to take them to Italy. The cargo was transported by coasters and thus by-passed the hindrance. The use of multiple transportation modes on this route meant that all of the corresponding customers were helped in the end.
