Abstract

Currently, the linkage of the four transportation modes, namely, road, rail, water and air on a quattro-modal freight hub is a low-priority issue with many uncertainties. The Austrian research project “Q4” focuses on this knowledge gap and on both potentials and limits of quattro-modal freight hubs. Therefore, the results of the Austrian research project outline in an exemplary manner the implementation opportunities for a quattro-modal freight hub within the central region of Linz-Wels-Steyr and the metropolitan region of Vienna.
