Freight logistics suffers from the lack of coordination of the stakeholders whereas have different objectives and point of views about an efficient system delivery. The rail freight interchanges, as strategic infrastructure, play a critical role in enabling economic growth and development of an efficient logistic. Recent developments in Physical Internet concept have highlighted the need for introducing new logistic innovations and reliable tools to design multimodal facilities. However, most of the previously published studies are limited to operator point of view. This paper analyses the impact of multiple stakeholders (public authorities, freight operators, consumers, infrastructure operators) for designing the interchange for the rail of the future.
