System and Functional Requirements for RoRo Cassettes in Multimodal Transport
Konferensbidrag (offentliggjort, men ej förlagsutgivet), 1994

Development of multimodal systems requires a systems approach in order to avoid sub-optimisation. Functional requirements of different subsystems and components should be extracted from a list of system require¬ments and not, as is much the case today, from demands of a single transport mode. This paper outlines system and functional requirements for a true multimodal system including road, rail and sea transport. A survey of current and projected systems including horizontal transfer of unit loads is presented. Finally, a brief suggestion of a multimodal cassette system that complies with the requirements is made.
