Welcome to DESTINY!

DESTINY which stands for DEployment of STandards for INtermodal efficiency is a co-funded project under the umbrella of the MarcoPolo programme of the European Commission, aims to provide a common learning action to improve efficiency in the intermodal transport chain.

The project, which starts on September 1, 2012 and will end August 31, 2014 is developed by a consortium of 8 partners, and relies on the official support of 15 associations operating in the intermodal transport sector.

DESTINY seeks to deploy best practices in the implementation of existing standards related to the identification, marking and codification of ILUs, load securing and handling dangerous goods.

The ultimate goal is to enhance the competitiveness of European intermodal transport and thus contribute to develop greener modes of transport as an alternative to pure-road freight transport in Europe.

“The initiative embodied in EN 13044 and the ILU-Code is a prime example for industry voluntarily regulating itself: a solution which the European Commission much prefers, especially when it embraces important security-related considerations, while also enhancing operational efficiency, all without the intervention of the legislator.”
