The paper presents a statistical analysis of the share of various modes of transport in intermodal transport in the last ten years. Conducted the examination of the significance of quality features of transport services on a sample of 613 companies chosen deliberately. The collected data were analyzed using two marking scales indicated determinants of composite supply chain. Results and conclusions: The presented analysis of transport service qualities in the context of prospective synchromodal transport included participants of complex supply chains.
