Abstract: Intermodal transport is an efficient solution for reducing greenhouse gases of freight transport but it requires intermodal terminals, where the transfer between modes can occur. The location of these terminals is a key factor for achieving economic and environmental competitiveness. A bi-objective model for the intermodal terminal location-allocation problem is developed. The focus is on road and on intermodal rail and inland waterway transportation. Operational costs and CO2 emissions are minimized, with the opportunity to integrate intermodal economies of scale. Intermodal global performances are assessed on the Belgian case study. Results show that intermodal inland waterway transport has to be preferred for ensuring better environmental performances.
