17. A truck maneuvers the bimodal trailer backwards on the concrete track and moves it onto a prepared bogie (adapter). 15 m swap bodies per unit to transport, which are not considered in this study. The low-platform car is a rail vehicle, which, because of its special design, carries one truck only. Since the total height of the loaded car is higher than the prescribed clearance on the rails, the rail vehicle must be designed as low as possible, hence the name low-platform car. With truck-on-train, one speaks of a form of accompanied intermodal transport.

1 Intermodal Transport Systems 35 From the point of view of a territorial state like Bavaria, internalization by means of a gasoline tax must be rejected. The reason is that the actual external marginal costs can be taken into account with this taxation. However, these tend to be lower in a territorial state than in major population centers. Firstly, there is less congestion relative to a densely populated area. Secondly, the emissions from traffic tend to harm fewer residents. The gasoline tax, however, taxes the road user in rural areas to the same degree as those in a large city, which amounts to unequal treatment.

Acceptance of road pricing with compensation measures, author's rendering [72] The stated measures could increase the acceptance of such a fee by the public to a degree that makes implementation possible. Thus it becomes clear that the support of public traffic next to the decrease of the taxes mentioned and building up the infrastructure is generally seen as a very acceptable measure. Alternatives in Practice The government of the Federal Republic of Germany is relying primarily on the gasoline tax hikes to internalize the external costs of road traffic.
