The Working Party on Intermodal Transport and Logistics (WP.24 and its predecessors) has, since 1951, provided a forum for exchange of technical, legal and policy information, as well as best practices, in combined and intermodal transport at the Pan-European level.
This work prepares the ground for policy advice and for the negotiation and administration of multilateral legal instruments.
The objective is to promote combined and intermodal transport in the 56 UNECE member countries and to ensure the maximum utilization of equipment, infrastructure and terminals used for such transport.
