Multi-modal transportation involves two or more different types of transport, such as truck, train and ship. These follow specific routes (e.g. the Asian Highway Network) and the issue is how to make those long corridors into value creating areas, rather than just land being travelled over without stopping. There is no simple answer to this question, hence the seminar (which will continue for two days, although not for public consumption).
