Offshore lifting operations must have reduced payload motion to increase safety and reduce operating time. When payload is retrieved from the splash zone to the deck, besides the crane block, no additional control can be applied on the underactuated system. Existing studies either assume more control over the payload or develop a control system...

This thesis has provided insight into how machine learning can be beneficial to path planning in container terminals. Path planning algorithms can be used in environments with automated vehicles. A well known algorithm is the A* path planning algorithm, which is the fastest optimal path planning algorithm under satisfied conditions. However, the...

In 2018, the International Maritime Organization (IMO) adopted a resolution to reduce the emission of greenhouse gasses of maritime shipping in the near future. A reduction of 50% in CO2-emissions is the goal for the year 2050 in comparison to 2008. Furthermore, the peak in emissions should lie before 2025 and steadily decrease afterwards.<br/...

Industrial electric motors are at the heart of almost every industry. They are a 47 billion USD market in 2020 and consume 70% of all industrial electricity. They are generally paired with a gearbox and load, which is referred to as an electric gearmotor system. Being so essential means that it is important to avoid failures, 98% of 300...

Covid-19, the Suez canal blockade and a decreasing amount of larger shipping companies have changed the container shipping industry. A power shift from the exporter towards the shipping companies is occurring, paired with capacity constraints and surging container transportation prices indicating a global container shortage. Exporters of large...

This thesis looks into the link between the Volkswagen emission scandal, or dieselgate, and the strong rise of electric vehicles in the years following that event. In order to investigate this, a framework is build that describes the process of an innovation (the electric vehicle), taking over from an incumbent technology (fossil fuel cars), in...

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...

Container liner shipping organisations facilitate trade between all regions globally by deploying vessels in a network with a corresponding sailing schedule. Since the container shipping network is part of a larger network, it is favourable for the continuation of the supply chain to maintain this schedule. Although the importance of the...

Planning the on-site transportation of large manufacturing sites is a complex process. Currently these plans are made based on the on-site logistics constraints rather than on KPIs. Research has been focused on either analysis of system parameters or generally on KPIs, but lacks the combination of both on real-life cases. This gap is closed by...

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...

In the automotive industry, automation is on the rise and it increases safety while decreasing costs. Improved sensor performance and greater computing power steers the future of the shipping industry in the same direction. Avoiding obstacles in close proximity is one of the current challenges. This research provides a generic and open- source...

Dynamic pricing can be used for better fleet distribution in free-floating vehicle sharing (FFVS), and thus increase utilization and revenue for the provider by reducing the supply-demand asymmetry. Supply-demand asymmetry refers to the existence of an undersupply of vehicles at some locations at the same time as underutilization of vehicles at...

The increased implementation of digitalisation all over the world has led to an exponential growth of available data across various industries. Consequently, there is a large growth of Machine Learning (ML) techniques being applied to process data. Predictive maintenance is a digital strategy using condition-based monitoring techniques to track...

In the construction industry, it is common to predict manufacturing times of structural elements based on the experience of shop managers. With the increasing use of Building Information Models (BIM) and data analysis in manufacturing processes an opportunity for improving the accuracy of predicted manufacturing times arises. This research...

The share of container transhipment within the Port of Rotterdam increases over the years. A new concept for a transportation vehicle will extend the use of autonomous vehicles for the transhipment between different terminals. In order to avoid the high traffic density highway A15, this new vehicle will make use of amphibious capabilities in...

Several different kinds of Miracoli Dinner kits are produced on Line 4 in Oud-Beijerland. The current method of planning of production is not sufficient in terms of product availability and planning nervousness. A new method of Most-Urgent-First planning is proposed and a simulation is run to measure the performance in order to see if another...

The introduction of MARS stands at Amsterdam Airport Schiphol’s new A-pier means a Clean VOP policy will be enforced. Under this regulation, vacant aircraft stands must be free of any cargo and baggage. In order to comply with this policy, KLM Cargo has to redesign its cargo handling procedure which is currently based on push logic. This paper...

Currently, KLM's apron processes work in separate silos and there is only minimal integration. The result is that processes tend to work to a local optimum instead of a global optimum. A Transport Logistic Control Tower is a centralized information hub from which integral decisions can be made which could benefit the overall turnaround process...
