Despite advanced communication, monitoring, and control facilities, train operations are still subject to uncertainties that can disturb train services, cause delay to multiple trains, and propagate through the network. One option is to mitigate delay propagation in the timetable design by adding buffer time to the minimum difference between the...

There has been a growing interest in improving the operating efficiency of warehouses, which is one of the critical facilities used in the logistics sector. This thesis examines the impact of order characteristics on the performance of different configurations of the outbound logistics of a 3PL warehouse. A contingency approach combined with a...

Travelers do not like transfers in their Public Transport journey; it gives a disutility. Minimizing this disutility is valuable to increase travelers' satisfaction. To be able to reduce this disutility, transfers have to be identified first. Multi-operator smart card datasets allow for the identification of transfers between different operators...

Investigating station choice is important for possibly solving various capacity issues such as bicycle parking. Current literature is often restricted to dissatisfier parameters such as travel time, presence of transfer and travel costs. In order to fully understand station choice, this research includes factors regarding perceived safety and...

Break bulk terminal operators are constantly in search for improving the performance of their operations. The logistical processes associated with these operations are complex and identifying where improvements have the largest impact on performance therefore is as well. In this paper a combination of system thinking and discrete-event...

Around the world, authorities try to increase the attractiveness of multimodal public transport (PT)-related trips to reduce car usage. To achieve this, a seamless combination between the different modes is necessary. The Dutch train station operator NS tries to enhance the combination of the bike and train by providing a train station-based...

Cities and regions are dealing with increasing levels of urbanization, which demands for more urban densification through urban developments. At the same time, liveability, sustainability, health, and social equity are becoming increasingly important. This demands for mobility solutions to use urban space more efficiently, while maintaining and...

Background: With around 70 supermarkets, Hoogvliet is one of the smaller supermarkets in the Netherlands. During the past years, more companies have become aware of the importance of efficient reversed logistics (Senthil et al., 2018). By optimizing this return flow, the return hall of supermarkets plays an important role. With the expected...

One of the current challenges withholding personalised lane-level driving advice is the inaccuracy and error of GPS signal from commonly used navigation devices and mobile phones. These GPS signals have an uncertainty margin up to several meters, therefore potentially indicating the vehicle location on a different lane than the actual lane it...

A rapid increase in international trade volumes during recent years has led to truck congestion at container terminals’ gates during peak hours. This has consequences on the costs of trucking companies waiting long times behind the gates. Furthermore, it leads to containers arriving too late at the hinterland, a lower port attractiveness and...

Modern cities are seeking possibilities to create healthy, sustainable and liveable urban environments. Yet these endeavours should not come at the expense of the accessibility of the city. Therefore, many cities try to promote the use of sustainable modes of transportation by developing transit-oriented neighbourhoods. An ongoing debate related...

There is an ongoing trend of urbanisation, and cities are becoming more and more crowded. In 2014, 46\% of the population of the OECD countries lived in urban areas. Whereas the growth of cities was previously mainly an expansion, the growing population is now increasingly leading to densification. Since 2007, more than half of the constructed...

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...

As the demand for the railways is expected to raise in the future, researchers are looking for ways to improve the railway capacity to increase the transport ability. Virtual coupling is a new solution based on the moving block technology, which further shortens train separation from absolute braking distance to relative braking distance. This...

Increasing concerns about the safety of cyclists request for more research in how infrastructure can be improved to increase cycling safety. Literature in the prediction of bicycle crash risk however is very limited. Also the amount of available (exposure) data was often very limited. The aim of this study was to provide a better understanding...

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...

New applications of connectivity between vehicles and the infrastructure are developed. One of these applications is providing upstream information on variable speed limits to connected and automated vehicles. It is expected that the connectivity can contribute to safer roads due to better compliance to the posted speed limits. Those...

Global supply chains currently are inefficient and unsustainable, due to their overlap and lack of interconnection. The Physical Internet (PI) proposes a paradigm shift in the way we move, store, supply, realize and use goods. The goal of the PI is to interconnect global supply chains, amongst others, on a digital level. For this, information...

The goals of bus services can be split into patronage (regarding the number of people that actually use the service) and coverage (regarding the number of people that are able to use the service) goals. Current bus networks are designed primarily for the coverage goals, as a consequence the patronage is lacking resulting in only few bus services...

Free-floating moped sharing systems are becoming more and more popular and provide new ways to travel inside urban areas. The vehicles offer the flexibility of one-way transportation, though the downside is that it creates a spatiotemporal imbalance of the vehicle distribution within the system. The operators of such systems are challenged to...
