Using the technology of autonomous transport systems, the Silk Road Cargo concept restructures intermodal freight transport. Particularly interesting is the transport of goods of high value or with temperature sensitivity, which have to reach their destination in under two weeks. The concept is based on a modular system of wagons, which can be loaded as sea containers and high-speed containers. By eliminating maneuvering and due to the flexibility of assembling the wagon groups, rail freight becomes more efficient and can be an alternative to road freight.
