Intermodal transport chains include several transport modes and several instances of handling at terminals. This means a specific cost structure, time consumption and a risk that goods will be damaged. The aim is to find the weakest link in intermodal transport chains, which can be critical when increasing combined transportation. The method is to map and analyse a number of intermodal transport chains and investigate each link in the chains with regard to time, cost, risk of damage, and administrative process. In this paper the methodology will be presented. The general problems of inter-modal transports will be described and three different inter-modal chains will be presented and analysed. Finally there are some conclusions and discussions of how to solve the problems.
