The considerable increase in parcel deliveries has negatively impacted the accessibility and livability of cities. One solution strategy is to decouple short-distance from long-distance shipping so that last-mile transport can be performed with low-footprint vehicles. Such solutions are referred to in the literature as multi-echelon...

This study focuses on two-echelon synchronized logistics in a multimodal distribution network for integrated road-based and waterborne transportation motivated by practical city logistics challenges. To evaluate the feasibility and requirements of a multimodal transport system as a potential future logistics solution for supplying hotels,...

In the era of increasing global connectivity, Schiphol Airport aims to transform into a Multimodal Transport Hub (MTH) to meet the growing demand for seamless travel experiences. This shift from the traditional hub-and-spoke model to an MTH not only enhances passenger satisfaction but also positions Schiphol as a leader in the aviation industry...

In recent years, the highly fragmented multimodal transport offer in several countries has required the integration of these services by logistics service integrators (LSIs). The challenge for LSIs is to set up multimodal transport corridors that can respond efficiently to the heterogeneous demand of shippers and that are cost- and price...

As a solution to the high greenhouse gas emissions and declining quality of life caused by private vehicles, the shared mobility hub is introduced. The shared mobility hub is a place where multiple modalities come together, including public transport and shared private mobility. As the shared mobility hub is a relatively new solution, limited...

Following the emergence of new mobility trends, in which shared mobility plays an essential role, Public transport operators face the challenge of reacting in a convenient way to the changes brought to the transportation scene. Even though different collaborations are being put in place between public operators and shared mobility providers, the...

Multimodal freight transport allows switching among different modes of transport to utilize transport facilities more efficiently. This paper proposes an approach on network modeling and robustness assessment for multimodal freight transport networks, where the nodes represent junctions, terminals and crossings, and the links represent...

Transport of containers on a-modal bookings enables transport suppliers to route the containers in accordance with the current state of the synchromodal transport network. At the same time, it enables the transport providers to route their vehicles in real time based on the current need for transportation. The interdependency of the routes of...

The ever increasing need of developing efficient solutions for the transport of cargo, able to reduce transport costs while complying to green policies has promoted the use of multimodal transport during the last decades. Multimodal<br/>transport consists of the use of at least two modes of transportation for the transport of cargo from origin...

A nation’s main port is a crucial component that contributes to the economic development of a country. Therefore, the role of the port becomes more critical nowadays. However, due to the existing hub-and-spoke structure of the European multimodal transportation network, polarisation and regionalisation are visible in the network. The increasing...

Intermodal freight transport has been discussed for decades as an alternative to unimodal road transport. However, it still does not represent a significant portion of the total freight market. A new and promising possibility to improve the performance of freight systems is the synchromodal design of hinterland transport systems. A...

Optimizing the performance of multimodal freight transport networks involves adequately balancing the interplay between costs, volumes, times of departure and arrival, and times of travel. In order to study this interplay, we propose an assignment model that is able to efficiently determine flows and costs in a multimodal network. The model is...

The position of multimodal transfer nodes, on the edge of the city, are of increasing importance in the contemporary daily (city) life. Transfer nodes are a moment of condensated movement in the mobile world, and do have a high potential of human activity and social interaction. The transfer node could functions as an urban node; a place for...

Cities have changed. People have changed. The 21st century, western citizens of the world travel more often, with more comfort, and longer distances than ever. History shows that a growing economy leads to a growing human need for communication and mobility. The daily action space of people exceeds by far the borders of their own city or village...

Multimodal transport, that is using two or more transport modes for a trip between which a transfer is necessary, seems an interesting approach to solving today's transportation problems with respect to the deteriorating accessibility of city centres, recurrent congestion, and environmental impact. Combining private transport and public...
