This study describes a preliminary design for a vehicle suitable for the
transshipment of (non-ISO) ACTS-containers from railcar to vehicle and vice
It is derived from ACTS, a multi-medium transport system for combined rail/road
transport of containers. The system gives problems specifically when used on
These problems result in capacity reduction and damage to the equipment.
