The aim of this thesis was to find the preferences of bus users in rural areas of the Netherlands for alternative public transport. Two alternatives for bus were proposed: a demand responsive transport service and a multi-modal alternative that combined express bus with bike-sharing services for last mile transport. A stated choice survey was...

This thesis proposes a model for charge scheduling of electric vehicles in last-mile distribution to investigate the impact of charge schedule optimisation on charging cost. A mixed integer problem formulation is proposed that considers labour, battery degradation and time-variable energy cost. The benefit of implementing charge schedule...

Diesel-powered Automated Guided Vehicles (AGV) are currently deployed for container transport at terminal’s water side. Looking at the trends in formal legislation and market developments towards sustainability, these diesel AGVs are most likely to become outdated. Although battery-electric AGVs are an emerging, zero-emission alternative, there...

Rail vehicle valuation is traditionally performed by taking the book value of a vehicle, complemented with a deviation factor for technical characteristics and condition based on the experience of an appraiser. This process is costly and time-consuming for large and/or spread-out fleets and creates financial risks for all parties involved in the...

The development of automated vehicles offers advantages for the transportation systems of the future. As a result, new and unknown challenges within the field of transportation arise. Moreover, there are uncertainties within the behavioural responses of travellers and amongst other things, the changes in the modal split within the transportation...

Within aircraft component MRO industry, companies providing availability contracts are challenged by inherently unpredictable demand patterns and complex time crucial operations. Most prevailing academic literature within the MRO industry has focused on availability models or operations management in repair shops in the past. This study focuses...

Manufacturing systems are becoming increasingly complex with the involvement of several plants, dozens of production lines, and thousands of different SKUs. Products have to be stored between the production stages, and the export to the end-users. Within this context, storage assignment decisions are crucial in order to reduce the number of...

Background: The domain of Reverse Logistics, which is lately coming more in the forefront, will serve as the focal point of this project. In the electronics industry, the importance of facilitating safe movements is constantly increasing. In order to prevent escalating the chances of damage, products have to be transported with adequate...

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...

The introduction and obligation of tendering PT (concessions) in Europe has led to more focus on cost-efficiency and contracts. An additional effect in regional PT is the increase of undesirable boundaries between train and bus, e.g. in the form of non-aligned tariffs and bad interchange possibilities. The goal of a multimodal concession is to...

The bicycle-transit combination is researched through a revealed preference survey in The Hague, applied on the tram network. Two main things are examined: which factors affect feeder distance and which feeder mode choice. This is done by bivariate analyses, multivariate analyses (two logistic regression models) and a qualitative analysis ...

Railway maintenance is currently planned according to a fixed schedule, mostly of one year. This is usually not optimal when considering the cost of maintenance, of possessions and of failure. However, an approach that minimizes the sum of these costs was not yet available. This paper presents a statistical analysis method and an optimization...

Tour formation is a distinguishing feature of freight transportation. An increasing amount of research is dedicated to the consideration of tour formation in freight simulation models, but these tour formation models lack statistical calibration on empirical data, do not represent shipments explicitly, or focus on a narrow segment of freight...

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...

Capturing the individual’s behavioral responses to the actions driven by market and government will always be an interesting activity towards a broad spectrum of society. It could not be neglected that an individual may have different views in responding towards a new policy intervention or a new product market. However, references to use of the...

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...

Due to current, ongoing mega trends such as continuing urbanisation and expanding population size, pressure on our urban transport system is increasing, resulting in more congestion, emissions, noise pollution and stress, among others. Transport is seen as one of a range of factors outside of health and medical fields which are known to impact...
