Microbridge (Bbhekm)

Definition
An intermodal shipment between a foreign port and an inland location in a second country, in which an overland movement to/from a port on a more distant coast in the second country replaces a longer water route to/from a nearer port. The micro-bridge service provides for direct movement from the initial port in the second country to the destination. (Source: Team: adapted from AASHTO Glossary)
