This thesis investigates different ways in which the productivity of a one-way bottling and packaging production line can be increased. This is done by comparing different configurations regarding machine capacities, machine reliability and buffer capacities with each other. This is done with both the use of a generic model and a case study. The...

We test the effect of a variety of feature sets representing passenger volumes, weather conditions and train interactions, when defined as features and used in a gradient boosting model to predict passenger train delays 20 minutes to the future from the last registration point. Effects of the features and their combinations on the prediction...

With the development of market globalization, the demand for an efficient and safe nautical chain in the deep-sea port increases. The complexity of nautical service network boosts the request from port authority to ask for a state-of-the-art simulation model that can improve the performance of nautical chain in the port level. The research aims...

Temperature excursions show that goods that are transported from an aircraft to the warehouse are exposed to ambient temperature for too long, affecting the temperature of the cargo. KLM Cargo has a cool chain project that tends to gain more insight in the operational performance. With the exposure as KPI, defined as Degree-Hours, all subsequent...

The accumulation of natural and persistent anthropogenic debris in particular, within aquatic ecosystems, brings along a myriad of ramifications. By reducing these debris, damage to nautical vessels and harm to marine life can be mitigated. Rivers are an important pathway of debris towards coastal harbors, ports and marine ecosystems. To...

This research focused on improving a current traveltime estimation system called<br/>the Trajectplanner. This system simulates the movements of inland ships on a<br/>network model of the Dutch inland waterways in order to calculate and to<br/>estimate the Estimated Time of Arrival (ETA) for every ship that sails the inland<br/>waterways ...

There is a need to know flow capacities of common bottlenecks of cycle storages because an increasing number of large cycle storages are being designed. Flow capacity values are not available from literature nor is a suitable method to determine those values. This research contributes to filling these research gaps, by developing a method to...

As the margins for improvements in the current freight transport system become limited, researchers address more and more the importance of collaboration between the actors which is crucial for the implementation of new, more efficient transport concepts as synchromodality. In addition, rail is concerned as a sustainable mode of transport that...

A promising vision to make the global logistics more sustainable is 'Physical Internet Logistics'. This vision, based on the way 'Digital Internet' sends packages information through a network, is focused on optimisation of handling, storing, realising and supplying objects. Physical Internet Logistics suggests an open, global and interconnected...

To convey the energy coming from offshore wind-farms to the end-users, a network of offshore transmission platforms with sub-sea cables is in place, functioning as the supply chain for electricity. This research addresses the development of an optimization model, OptiFleet, which targets the problem of vessel fleet management to perform the...

Increased international marine transport has increased the use of containers. This goes hand in hand with the increased demand for well-functioning container terminals. The speed at which containers can be handled on the container terminal is an important performance indicator for container terminals. In particular, the productivity of the Quay...

Industrial railway systems can be found within companies where the production and processing of goods require large quantities to be transported. These underdeveloped systems are often privately owned and are characterized by short to cover distances, many locations, inefficient layout due to historical expansion and bidirectional driving. Local...
