The paper specifies an Integrated System (IS) devoted to efficient management and control of Intermodal Transportation Networks (ITN). The IS is designed to take both tactical decisions, in an off-line mode, and operational decisions, in real time. Both the resulting IS structures rely on a closed loop approach tuning decisions with the current system conditions. In either case, the IS core is a reference model using information from the real system, obtained by modern Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) tools, for ITN efficient planning and management purposes. To obtain a systematic model suitable to describing generic ITN, the reference model relies on a metamodeling approach that allows the thorough and detailed description of the ITN structure and behavior. The proposed metamodeling procedure is a top-down approach based on the Unified Modeling Language, a graphic and textual formalism for representing systems structure and behavior.
