Combined transport - the optimum transport alternative
This rolling highway is a combined transport system for moving road vehicles by rail. The truck or trailer is placed on a special train for onward transport.
Combined transport by rail is a safer and usually quicker alternative to roads. Driving bans on Sundays and holidays are no longer an issue. During the journey, the driver can rest in attached extra carriages fitted with seats or couchettes, which is officially classed as a rest period.
The environmental factor is also quite significant: the use of combined transport greatly reduces CO₂ emissions.
