The goal of IMTIS is to create a centralized and transparent database for distance calculations in short-haul goods transport. Since the abolition of the German Güterferntarif in 1993, there has been no common data base for distance and price calculations. IMTIS aims to provide such a platform, for both clients and service providers.
IMTIS is used to calculate combined routings for multimodal goods transport from seaports to destinations, usually consisting of both a main run (using inland water or rail for transport) and a truck transport (to the final destination).
Example: A freight container arrives in Rotterdam via cargo ship and needs to be transported to 48 Berliner Str., Heidelberg, Germany. First the container is loaded onto a barge and transported to the Contargo terminal in Ludwigshafen. It is then placed on a truck and transported to its destination. The recipient unloads it, and the truck transports the empty container back to the terminal.Remarks:
