Abstract:

Interaction in working operations of railroads, motor transport and river and sea navigation is discussed. Primary attention was directed toward the necessity for reloading cargo at points of interface between these transportation modes, and the role of containers in alleviating this problem. Several container terminals at various ports and major railway stations are described, including handling equipment, layout of working space, and operations. Attention in the USSR appears to be directed toward relieving the overloaded railroads through increased use of river communications and motor transport for short hauls.
