Based on the trend of growing role for airbound traffic on the one hand and the growing need for efficient and economic transportation, this paper gives an intermodal approach to describe the whole transportation task ” from door to door“. To do this, the concept of the “transport chain” is introduced and formalized. On the base of this overallmodel of the system, the optimization objectives are formulated with special respect on the local views of the different stakeholders that offer the different services along the transport chain. Additionally, the transport chain concept is used to couple existing models of the transportation domain by modularization into independent transportation steps and an interface between these steps that abstracts from the steps’ implementation by focusing on guarantees for the service offered, only.
