There are several practical problems in the actual operation of sea-rail combined transport:
First, the game of various stakeholders in the transport organization is serious, and the railway sector, ports, shipping companies, freight forwarding, etc. lack a community of interests, and it is difficult to achieve a win-win situation;
Second, the lack of systematic design of the connection between the iron route and the port terminal hardware, the shortage of the port collection and distribution system with the railway container as the main body, often requires the road to double-fold and increase the cost and reduce the efficiency;
Thirdly, the international logistics information platform based on shipping and the TIMS information platform of the railway are self-contained, lack of sharing, and lack of standards in the interface. It is difficult to realize the core value of “one declaration, one inspection, one release” and other sea-rail combined transport; Fourth, the public water transport is often a self-contained container of the enterprise, which cannot be used on the railway or recovered in time on the long-distance railway network;
Fifth, the balance of the weight of the container single box in the sea is rarely restricted, but the balance of the single box weight of the container itself is strict in railway transportation;
Sixth, the two-way logistics load in China-Europe international sea-rail combined transport is unbalanced, making it difficult to achieve a return and reduce profit margins.
