International Union for Road-Rail Combined Transport

The International Union for Road-Rail Combined Transport (UIRR) was created in 1970 and has a liaison office in Brussels since 1988. Its main objective is to represent the interests of CT operators and terminal managers mainly offering Road-Rail solutions to the freight logistics market. The UIRR member companies concentrate a variety of functions and roles within the Combined Transport chain: the commercialisation role (CT trains), the transhipment task (terminal operator), the rolling stock function (wagon owner/keeper or lessee) and the traction role (railway undertaking).

UIRR will be active in the WP4 ‘Smart loading units’ with the task to identify the current constraints of aerodynamic devices in Road-Rail Combined Transport (technically, operationally and administratively) and to assess concepts specifically in terms of market acceptance and of intermodal compatibility
