combined transport terminal
Status: Rejected (inactive)
Proposed by: mchia
Tagging: transshipment=*
Applies to:
Definition: a place for the transshipment of containerized goods.
Drafted on: 2011-11-14
RFC start: 2011-12-19
Vote start: 2012-01-04
Vote end: 2012-01-19


The proposal is

basic idea: to have a polygon and a point where freight container were transshiped - this polygon or point makes it possible to calulate or visualize intermodal connections.

advanced idea: to have a polygon and a point where the transport mode of something (passenger, good, container, package ...) is changed from transport mode A to B (e.g. road --> railway or inland waterway --> railway and so on...)


basic idea: There is right now no possibility to tag such a terminal near a street, waterway or railway. e.g. the kv-terminal (german for combined transport terminal) frankfurt oder is tagged as a railway plattform, but it is a combined transport terminal and not a railway plattform.

There are worldwide many polygons/points with such a function in harbours and near railways.

Other examples: ElbePort Wittenberge, RLC Wustermark / KV-Terminal Wustermark, BASF Schwarzheide

Additional details for the combined terminals which are operated by logistics service provider... - name of terminal - company-name / contact-person / telephone-number - website - street / number / postcode / city / land / country - for the future: security level

How to map

There is the need for polygons and some details to this polygons.

What can be mapped?

You can map a polygon.

Rendering suggestion

rendering in every scale, but in higher scale as a polygon and in lower scale as a dot.

  • I oppose this proposal I oppose this proposal. Nonsense and the tagging of the terminal in Frankfurt (O.) as a railway plattform is correct!--R-michael 19:01, 15 January 2012 (UTC)
  • I oppose this proposal I oppose this proposal. I'm obviously not the only one having no idea what this is. Maybe add some mapping example with photos? It seems to me that a transshipment terminal is always part of a harbour or railway station. This is ok, but it should be made clear. Worst of all is that you didn't even define values for the proposed key. transshipment=yes or what? I suggest that you refine this proposal and put it into RFC state again. --Fkv 09:18, 18 January 2012 (UTC)
