A transport using at least two means of transport is called a combined transport (CT). A traditional road/rail combined transport contains a pick up service with a short road haulage at the place of dispatch, transhipment to a rail wagon, long dis¬tance rail haulage, another transhipment and a delivery road haulage. On July 1, 1992, the business unit for CT of Swedish State Railways (SJ), SJ Kombi, was changed into a limited company. The new company, Rail Combi AB, is principal of all Swedish CT terminals and has also a monopoly of selling domestic CT services to hauliers and forwarders. Approximately 1 000 wagons for combined transport are handled daily at the Swedish terminals. About 20 % refer to international transport . Rail Combi takes a central point in this paper. The purpose of the paper is to describe the Swedish production system for domestic combined transport. The current situation as well as development plans are de¬scribed. The outline is made along three descriptive factors; activities, resources and actors.
