The contribution of intermodal transport terminals to increase the productivity of combined transport was subject of the presentation to the INTERUNIT General Committee in Brussels on October 22, 2010.
Intermodal Terminals of the AGORA project continue common learning and coordinated improvement of services and have founded a terminal interest group in Frankfurt am Main on November 9, 2010.

The final conference convened 40 high level experts involved in intermodal transport of Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, Luxemburg, Romania, Switzerland, Slovakia and The Netherlands.
