In this publication the modal shift - distribution between transport modalities - of hinterland transport and (re-)positioning of empty containers is studied at Maersk Line. The former is nowadays in the spotlights by policy makers. The general idea about multimodal transport is that it is more sustainable than truck transport and could lead to cost savings. This will lead to stronger regulations as could be found in the tender of Maasvlakte 2. The latter will be more and more important for cost savings in the future and a more ecient transport network. Two actual projects at Maersk Line are a shift from truck transport towards rail barge transport and savings on empty (re-)positioning. These will be highlighted in this publication.
