Shipping companies aim to reach the climate goals by following the rules from the International Maritime Oranization (IMO), which includes reducing Scope 3 emissions. Maintenance is a great contributor to the Scope 3 emissions of a shipping company, especially the transportation of spare parts. The current state-of-the-art supply chain...

Efficient distribution is crucial in many industries today, especially in retail, where customer demand grows rapidly. The rise of online shopping and automation has led to a shift towards using Central Distribution Centers (CDCs). Retailers are part of this trend, which requires them to rethink how they handle their distribution. This study...

The growing demand for parcel deliveries is causing significant problems for freight logistics, particularly in cities. The increasing number of delivery vehicles leads to traffic congestion, high emissions, and rising costs. To address these problems, new and sustainable delivery methods must be implemented for<br/>the parcel last-mile. However...

A monopile installation project consists of the whole process of loading monopiles to vessels, transporting monopiles to the wind farm and drilling monopiles in the seabed. Each installation project has different characteristics as the weather at the installation location, the distances to the suppliers and the vessels that are available differ...

In the upcoming years the Municipality of Amsterdam has to cope with renovation works to approximately 200 kilometers of quay walls and 800 bridges. These projects need to be executed in the least burdensome manner, which is why executing parties are obliged to perform their construction logistics via waterways instead of the road. Stakeholders...

As connections between customers and suppliers become increasingly complex, the design of transport networks is under growing pressure to achieve efficiency. In response to this challenge, this paper proposes a service network design that takes into account both the forward flows from a production facility to a customer and the returning flows...

The Dutch railway network is a dense network with 7000 kilometers of railway tracks spread over only 42 000 square kilometers [1, 2]. Additionally, the railways are responsible for 1.4 million passengers every working day [1]. These factors make both the infrastructure and timetable of the Dutch railway network extremely intricate. On top of...

Optimizing delivery routes is a well-researched topic, however, most of the classical approaches do not incorporate preferences of drivers, as those approaches focus on minimizing the time or distance of the routes. As a result, the actual driven route of an experienced driver often deviates from the proposed route since the drivers have tacit...

On-demand ridesharing might be an effective solution to reduce traffic congestion and, as a result, reduce emissions to mitigate environmental issues. However, travel times are more uncertain in ridesharing services compared to non-shared transit services due to their shared nature. For example, at one moment, the users are informed that the...

Quay cranes on modern container terminals have the possibility to lift two 40ft. containers side by side. In order to be able to perform this type of lift, the crane must be equipped with a tandem spreader. As this type of spreader cannot be used for performing certain lifts, such as the handling of hatch covers, switches between single spreader...

Long waiting times in ports for inland vessels to load and unload containers are a serious problem. The European project NOVIMOVE researches the inefficiencies and suggests solutions. One of the solutions for reducing waiting times in ports is the placement of Modular Mobile Terminals (MMTs). The focus of the research will be on the ports of...

In order to meet climate change mitigation targets, the shipping industry must change to an alternative fuel. From a ship design perspective, the switch to an alternative fuel is often a downgrade with respect to the use of conventional fuels. For instance, most alternative fuels have a low energy density, rely on technology that is not fully...

We propose a novel method combining elements of supervised- and Q-learning for the control of dynamical systems subject to unknown disturbances. By using the Inverse Optimization framework and in-hindsight information we can derive a causal parametric optimization policy that approximates a non-causal MPC expert. Furthermore, we propose a new...

Inverse Learning is implemented in order to learn a control/decision policy (in the integer space) from an Expert Agent. The Learner Agent assumes that the Expert is acting minimizing an unknown cost function and tries to approximate it, through its own parametrized version of it. Learning can be performed in two different ways: offline ...

With a growing number of citizens and tourists, the scarce public space, roads, and public transport in Amsterdam are experiencing rising pressure. Instead of utilizing the conventional transportation routes, Autonomous Surface Vessels (ASVs) could transport goods and people via the 165 canals present in Amsterdam. <br/>However, urban canals are...

In time of fast globalization and urbanization, the volumes of transported containers have significantly increased in the last decades. The challenges of operating with high volumes of containers have propagated from the deep-sea terminals into the hinterland network resulting in extensive use of road transportation, long waiting times and high...

The past decade has seen a rise in ability to collect, store and manage large amounts of data. With data becoming increasingly available to businesses, organizations are looking to new ways to gain insight into their activities. Acquired information can help transportation companies to cope with industry trends of expanded competition, the...

E-grocers are grocery markets which offer their assortment online and deliver a customer's groceries at home. For an e-grocer the quality of their delivery service is a crucial asset to create and maintain a loyal customer-base. Because the online share of the grocery market has grown rapidly over the last decade, there is an urgent need for e...

E-commerce has grown rapidly worldwide over the past decade and thus more parcels are shipped into urban areas. The last mile delivery of these parcels into an urban area create big problems such as congestion and pollution. In order to tackle these problems new solutions have been found by either changing the operations of the system or using...

In this thesis, we study Online Convex Optimization algorithms that exploit predictive and/or dynamical information about a problem instance. These features are inspired by recent developments in the Online Mirror Decent literature. When the Player's performance is compared with the best fixed decision in hindsight, we show that it is possible...
