The EIA was founded in 1993 and is the only neutral European Intermodal Organization open to all transport modes recognised by the European Commission, while it has an NGO status within the UN and ECMT/OECD.
Currently, rather than a truly European transport system, several barriers exist to the seamless movement of passengers and goods across borders. There are operational barriers stemming from diversity in regulations, technical barriers from incompatible technologies, infrastructure barriers due to the incomplete network of major cross-border links across the continent, and legal barriers because of the lack of pertinent European legislation.
EUROPLATFORMS and the European Intermodal Association (EIA) have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) in order to increase the cooperation between both associations.
