This paper deals with transportation technology regarding links between power unit and cargo space. These links can be divided into two groups: rigid and flexible. Rigid link, established between power unit and cargo space, is dominant in maritime and road transport (sea ships and trucks), and occasionally in transport on inland waterways (self- propelled barges). Flexible link is used in the railroad transport (systems with trailers and semi trailers), and in inland waterway transport (push - towing and pulling systems, and combinations of the systems). The main goal of this research is determination of possible link types and organization of the means of transportation.
