Despite the fact that intermodalism is a benefit for companies who want to ship or transport their goods, it a constant source of anxiety and frustration for the companies and businesses involved in transport. The shippers, carriers and as well as the policy makers have struggle with the challenges related to lack of terminal access, urban congestion, grade crossings, congestions at international ports ,restriction on the usage of transportation equipment, and rural isolation. The most critical challenge of these however is the lack of intermodal transfers.
