Abstract

This chapter focuses on the operational performance of rail freight terminals and security of intermodal interfaces in a framework of integrated transportation network. In an increasingly competitive and commercialised world, there is an increasing demand to be able to rank transport options and routes in some way. Drawing on new material, this study attempts to outline possible methods for assessing performance by key performance indicators. Intermodality demands for going beyond safeguarding the individual modes to ensuring the security of the intermodal interfaces (terminals), the nodes that link and integrate passenger and freight flows. That demands for an integrated holistic approach built on the collaboration between international, national organisations and operators. The study put emphasis on the security challenges and threats to freight transport generally and in rail–sea interfaces more specifically. It moves into the regulations already governing security in rail–sea interfaces. Finally, it focuses on the role that infrastructure planning can play in improving security and offers some conclusions and recommendations for the future.
