How are semi-trailers being transported by rail?

Using special equipment, semi-trailers are loaded on the train platform. At the end of the rail journey, at the intermodal terminals, the semi-trailers are moved back onto the trucks for the "last mile" service, i.e. to deliver the goods to the customer "door to door".
