Rail Intermodal Terminals




Rail intermodal terminals (e.g. operated by CN or CP) that facilitate transitions between rail and road. Systems may include reservation systems, electronic gate control for entrance and exit from the facility, automated guidance of vehicles within the facility, alerting appropriate parties of container arrivals and departures, and inventory and location of temporarily stored containers. The terminal may also provide support for customs agencies to perform their functions, where international cargo may be handled, as well as implement weigh-in-motion and other commercial vehicle inspection capabilities to ensure that commercial vehicle/chassis/container assemblages that leave the facility are roadworthy. The terminal can also support security functionality both to secure containers and to prevent unauthorised personnel or vehicles from violating the facilities.
