This paper  overviews the current status and future trends in combined freight transport in the EU. In addition, it presents the design and implementation of an innovative web platform that supports shippers and forwarders to seek near optimal intermodal transport solutions that take into account cost, transportation time, risk and CO2 emissions. The paper analyses initially the related requirements of 35 freight companies.  Subsequently, the design of the platform is presented, which takes into account these requirements in order to a) develop an attractive transportation plan using available data and related OR techniques, b) request offers from registered providers, and c) monitor delivery.
