Abstract: Since rail-road transport uses road and rail networks and requires thetransshipment infrastructures at the terminals, its competitiveness depends notonly on the costs but also on the location of these terminals. This paper focused onproviding a methodology for determining the optimal locations for intermodalfreight transportation terminals in consolidation network. The goal is tominimize total costs in order to increase the efficiency of the transportationsystem. This paper also has allowed us to have an overview of the methods andmodels that exist for solving the problem of intermodal and terminal locating.
