Cargobeamer is an intermodal transport system. It involves specially designed pallets which can be carried on a road trailer; the pallets are fitted on top of flatcars but can slide sideways to allow trucks to drive on & off smoothly at intermodal terminals.[1][2] The first terminal was opened in Leipzig in Germany; trial runs between Leipzig and Lithuania are planned in November 2010.[3] Competing systems[4] are offered by Modalohr,[5] ResoR@il (defunct? ), and Cargospeed [6][7]
