題目:Bi-Modal terminals and Mid-corridor connect intermodal solutions –
A new leap in Freight Productivity

The concept for a Bi-Modal terminal was developed in Australia and used for a major State Freight network strategy. (DoTV, 2008). The concept for Bi-modal terminals is one that exhibits aspects of both inter-modal and multi-modal freight systems. The terminals are served by Performance Based Standard (High Productivity) road freight vehicles as one freight technology combined with a rail freight shuttle locomotive as the second vehicle technology. The combined power of these technologies, within a closed, or fixed, freight network can generate significant productivity improvements.

Bi-Modal terminals are useful in an urban environment as well as a long distance corridor environment. Another concept that can be used in conjunction with long distance corridor freight operations is that of ‘mid-corridor connect’intermodal freight networks. Mid corridor connect solutions are useful in many ‘semi’ time sensitive freight operations and require the use of two modes inter-connecting at some point within a freight corridor. Freight is then exchanged to the other mode for delivery to a final terminal or distribution centre and achieving a lower cost than the fastest individual mode and with a better standard of customer services than the slowest individual freight mode. Despite the power of the ‘mid corridor connect’ concept few operators offer such a service to their customers. The paper examines two Australian case studies to show the power of ‘mid corridor connect’ solutions. Mid corridor connect solutions can also be used in conjunction with Bi-modal terminals.

Keywords: Bi-modal transport, freight productivity, performance based standards, freight exposure, urban freight, logistic parks.
