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...

This study was conducted to address the lack of insight port authorities have in port competitiveness. Within this thesis a data-driven model is presented that allows to assess port competition within a bounded scope. This model is developed from the ground up and programmed in the Python programming language as a stand-alone solution. The model...

In this research we look into the integrated LTL routing and loading problem. A review from previous research shows that this integrated problem is novel. All previous literature that researched into an integrated routing and loading problem focused on the loading and vehicle routing problem (3L-CVRP). Different heuristics have been tested on...

In 20 years, from 1996 to 2016, global cumulative container port throughput had an average annual growth rate of 6.3%. Furthermore, the average global transshipment incidence increased from 11% in 1980 to a stable 27% in 2017. This change in transshipment market dynamics has led to opportunities for potential port investments or disinvestments....

With an increase in amount of container terminals competition between terminals has risen. Therefore it has become more and more important for terminal operators to conduct their work as efficient as possible. Efficient terminal operations are hindered by stochasticity, which is defined as random variation in parameter values. Due to missing...

The Space@Sea platform is a sustainable offshore modular platform designed for a workspace at sea as an effort in coping up with the economic growth and allocating marine resources to more efficient uses. There are four potential applications of the platform: farming, transport & logistics hub, energy hub, and living spaces. In the case of...

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in formal legislation and market developments towards sustainability, these diesel AGVs are most likely to become outdated.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...

The largest part of the European ports are engaged into addressing proactively environmental and societal issues in order to achieve an always more sustainable development. However, there are several sources that indicate that gaps and barriers exist which impede the sustainable development of many Mediterranean ports. In order to deal with the...

Small scale inland shipping, especially in the case of transported containers, is used only marginally compared to its capacity. The small inland waterways have abundant capacity to accommodate up to 700 percent more transport. On the other hand, road based container transport is cause for external damages in the form of congestion, emissions...

There is a significant historical link between maritime trade and economic activity. With the rapid growth of containerised trade over the past 60 years, a significant share of global trade is transported by container nowadays. This suggests there is a connection between container flows and economic activity. There is also a time delay between...

A large increase in containerized maritime transport, bigger ships and bigger call sizes cause the need for container transhipment terminals to increase the volume they can handle without increasing their handling costs and handling time at the terminal. This research aims at deepening the understanding of how this goal can be achieved through...

In intermodal transport multiple types of vehicles are used to transport containers. If the routes of the vehicles are known, then the container allocation can be optimized. This problem can be modelled as an integral multi-commodity min cost flow problem on a time-space graph. This model has an arc-based and path-based form. In this thesis, the...

At the United Nations Climate Change Conference held in Paris in 2015, ambitious goals for the worldwide CO2 emissions were set. To achieve these goals, a huge reduction in CO2 emissions must be realized. For the energy market, the current aim is to use renewable electricity instead of fossil fuels. However, there are multiple sectors where...

This research has proposed a tentative design of information flows on PI embed three PI components: (1) modular containers, (2) open interface web, and (3) global protocols. Through the design, this research has identified potentials of the primary PI elements to resolve current issues in freight logistics (i.e., inefficient space utilization on...

Bahía Blanca in Buenos Aires province is located 600 kilometres south of Buenos Aires city. The port complex of Bahía Blanca has the second largest throughput in Argentina considering tons, mainly attributed to the agro – and petrochemical industry. The port handles containers as well, however with an average of 30 thousand TEU/year this...

Heavy competition between container terminals and the increasing volume of world-wide container shipment force container terminals to continuously increase productivity and reduce costs. An important condition for optimal operation of container terminals is that Quay Cranes (QCs) maximize their productive time, which requires a minimal lateness...

Zutphen is a city in the Netherlands, located along the IJssel River and the nautical access of the Twentekanaal. Despite its beneficial location, Zutphen barely uses the inland waterways for freight transport. This lead to the objective of this thesis: To provide insight how a viable inland waterway terminal be realized in Zutphen’s business...

The fruit juice which is sold in our supermarkets, here in the Netherlands, originates from all over the world. The vast majority of juices are imported from abroad. Apple juice from China, orange juice from Brazil, pineapple juice from Ghana; juices travel a long way before we consume them.

The transport of juices, by sea, road and...

In this report we present an interactive multi-objective optimization tool that was developed as part of this graduation project. This appliance is meant to be used as a decision support tool for transportation planners working on a synchromodal transportation network on the container-to-mode assignment, where different attributes are considered...
