Abstract
Purpose: The purpose of this thesis is to find intermodal
transportation solutions for COMPANY X’s
production in Turkey to different destinations in
Europe.
Methodology: The analysis is mainly based on quantitative studies.
An inductive approach has been used to connect
theoretical perspectives and the empirical material.
Theory: General theories within transports and environmental
effects are illustrated. For practical application of the
problems in the analysis, the PESTEL-framework and
the SWOT-analysis is used.
Empiric: The empiric is given by confidential data from
COMPANY X and expert competence within UBQ.
Recommendation: According to the question formulation we think that
there is a possible intermodal solution, which... (More)

Recommendation: According to the question formulation we think that
there is a possible intermodal solution, which is ever
better than the Setup of Reference. We consider
Intermodal Setup A as the most beneficent for
COMPANY X, and it is long term sustainable. (Less)
