Global synchromodal transportation is a promising strategy for providing efficient, reliable, flexible, and sustainable container shipping services across continents. It involves integrating multiple modes and routes owned by various operators to create a comprehensive transport plan. However, these operators often have their own local...

The transport sector accounts for approximately a quarter of the EU’s total greenhouse gas emissions, with freight transport alone accounting for about one-third of the overall transport-related emissions. Mitigating the sector’s environmental impact is crucial for tackling climate change and achieving sustainable development goals. Modal...

The objective of this study is to address the issue of service time uncertainty in synchromodal freight transport, which can cause delays, inefficiencies, and reduced satisfaction for shippers. The proposed solution is an online deep Reinforcement Learning (RL) approach that takes into account the service time uncertainty, assisted by an...

This paper considers a decentralized container transport system in which two decision-makers are involved in getting a container from its origin to its destination: a logistics service provider (LSP) and a flexible service operator (FSO). While the LSP receives shipment requests from shippers and controls the movement of containers over a...

Cooperation between container transport service providers can increase efficiency in the logistics sector significantly. However, cooperation between competitors requires co-planning methods that not only give the cooperating partners an advantage towards external competition but also protect the partners from losing information, clients and...

Container transport is an essential part of the well-functioning, highly specialized, and global production chains society currently relies on. To improve the utilization of resources, it is important to ensure all processes are as efficient as possible. Synchromodal transport is a recent transport paradigm which seeks to increase the efficiency...

As a critical feature of synchromodal transport (ST), service flexibility plays an important role in improving the utilization of resources to reduce costs, emissions, congestions, and delays. However, none of the existing studies considered flexible services under the framework of synchromodality. This paper develops a Mixed Integer Linear...

In synchromodal transport, a freight forwarder usually serves multiple shippers with heterogeneous and vague preferences, such as low-cost, fast, or reliable transport. Ignoring shippers’ preferences will negatively impact the satisfaction of shippers and lead to the loss of them in the longer run. In order to incorporate these preferences, a...

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...

This article shows the results of our study to determine the general level of synchromodal maturity for shippers and logistics service providers operating in The Netherlands and Belgium. A questionnaire was used to assess the maturity of synchromodal transport for 41. This research extends the literature by applying the model to a broader...

This paper investigates a dynamic and stochastic shipment matching problem faced by network operators in hinterland synchromodal transportation. We consider a platform that receives contractual and spot shipment requests from shippers, and receives multimodal services from carriers. The platform aims to provide optimal matches between...

Container transport requires real-time control and a high degree of cooperation to alleviate disturbances and perform smoothly without unnecessary environmental impact and monetary losses. The involved operators are, however, often reluctant to cooperate as they fear loosing valuable information and autonomy, eventually leading their clients...

This paper investigates a dynamic and stochastic shipment matching problem, in which a platform aims to provide online decisions on accepting or rejecting newly received shipment requests and decisions on shipment-to-service matches in global synchromodal transportation. The problem is considered dynamic since the platform receives requests...

Hinterland intermodal transportation is the movement of containers between deep-sea ports and inland terminals by using trucks, trains, barges, or any combination of them. Synchromodal transportation, as an extension of intermodal transportation, refers to transport systems with dynamic updating of plans by incorporating real-time information...

This paper investigates the willingness of shippers to delegate control over the transportation mode in freight transportation, using discrete choice analysis. Data originate from a large survey among global shippers. The results show that, under certain conditions, most shippers are willing to hand over mode selection authority to the...

When barges are scheduled before the demand for container transport is known, the scheduled departures may match poorly with the realised demands’ due dates and with the truck utilization. Synchromodal transport enables simultaneous planning of container, truck and barge routes at the operational level. Often these decisions are taken by...

Logistics service providers (LSPs) offering container transport to the hinterland of the Netherlands face the challenge of efficiently using the capacity of the barge in order to minimize cost, while part of the relevant information is still lacking at the moment decisions have to be made. The existing infrastructure and the transportation...

A synchromodal transport network is a transportation technique which aims to create more efficient and sustainable transportation plans, which utilizes different modes of transport, i.e., roadways, railways, and waterways synchronously. Synchromodal transport network is a complex network with interdependence. The aim of this thesis was to...

Container port competitiveness is generally conceptualized as being driven by straightforward criteria, such as port costs, handling efficiency, hinterland connectivity, and the quality of infrastructure and services. Synchromodal freight transport service is an emerging and developing concept of freight transport operations, as shippers and...

In order to meet emission targets for 2050 in Europe transport needs to be executed more 2 efficiently. A promising way to make transport more efficient is synchromodal transport. When the 3 service provider has more flexibility to arrange transport, the utilization and use of intermodal transport, 4 such as rail, can be increased and emissions...
