Truck-based goods transport poses problems from traffic congestion to high fuel inefficiency. Logistics centers integrated with freight railway have become one of the options to solve the the problem. Using qualitative approach, this study aims to investigate how freight railway integrated logistic center improve smooth flow of goods transport. Data collection was obtained through non structured, semi structured and depth interviews. In addition, focus group discussion was also conducted to collect data based on different perspectives from various stakeholders.
