This article deals with the main characteristics of interest in the research, emphasizing the types of infrastructure, the intermodal logistics platforms (LPs) and their LP expansion plans located in the three most important continents of the world, by volume of cargo handling and geographical situation: the American, the European and the Asian. The objective of the paper is to address the selection criteria of LPs whose importance is to note that most platforms in the world are linked to seaports, because of their importance in global trade relations. The methodology applied for the study was the analysis of infrastructures of the ILPs: Rotterdam, Barcelona - ZAL (Spain), Le Havre (France), United States of America: Long Beach, Los Angeles, New York and in Asia, as well as in Hong Kong (China), Singapore (Singapore) and Tokyo (Japan), data collection and analysis have made it possible to understand the importance of these ILPs for the movement of loads to various parts of the world. The comparative results evidenced the importance in the economic strategy of these ILPs such as: types of infrastructure, intermodality systems and expansion plans space productivity, vehicle traffic limitation, economic performance, size and classification. The types of infrastructure mainly characterize the main terminals of dry and liquid loads. The intermodality system reinforces the integration of transport modes, increasing the synergy required for the movement of cargoes in these LPs.
