Multimodal Promotion provides companies with direct D2D routing that takes combined transport (road, rail, water) schedules and the creation of sensible new connections into account. After entering the transport quantity data, a company receives direct recommendations regarding which of its shipments can be transported sensibly using combined transport. A Web-2.0 user interface is used to enter the data. Once the transport data has been analysed, each company receives a tailored, automated evaluation of its potential savings and cooperation potentials.
