Abstract

Intermodal transport, or briefly speaking transport using at least two different modes of transport, is becoming an increasingly important element of the EU transport policy not only in terms of cost and time, but also in terms of safety and environmental protection. In Poland, mainly due to the observed development of intermodal terminals it recognizes the growing importance of this type of transport. In the last 5 years investments in the development of intermodal terminals with the use of the European Union funds have exceeded 300 million Euro. It is difficult, however, to identify the compliance of these projects with the available methodological standards and good practices. The article is just such an attempt – it examines the projects of development of intermodal terminals in Poland for the achievement of the objectives, compliance with the schedule and the efficiency of the planned budgets. A consequence of the analysis is to identify common problems for this type of projects and to offer solutions through greater use of the available project management methodological tools successfully used in other industries and sectors.
