Road freight transport has a major impact on society with external effects such as congestion, air pollution and carbon emissions. Therefore, the European Commission stimulates the more sustainable alternative Intermodal Freight Transportation (IFT). To increase the share of IFT, it is needed to know the performance of the current IFT-network....

The cargo fare class mix (CFCM) problem aims to find the optimal fare class mix for a given intermodal transportation network based on known client demands. It is based on a revenue management problem for aviation passengers, the fare class mix problem, but considering intermodal cargo transportation, two major differences apply. Firstly, the...

The global market for conditioned transport – predominantly conducted in refrigerated containers (‘reefers’) – grows rapidly. Due to the energy usage for continuous cargo cooling, the climate impact of cold logistics chains is substantial and still increasing.<br/>In addressing climate concerns, governments have committed themselves to a ‘modal...

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...

This paper investigates the problem of inter-terminal movements of containers and vehicles within a port area in order to achieve an integrated and effective transport within the port and towards the hinterland. Containers from different port terminals are first moved to a rail yard and then delivered to the hinterland by rail. To provide...

Synchromodaal transport biedt een oplossing om goederen efficiënter en betrouwbaarder te vervoeren, maar blijkt in de praktijk vaak nog lastig te realiseren. Welke uitdagingen zijn er voor bedrijven van intermodaal naar synchromodaal transport over te schakelen?

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...

Intermodal Inland Waterways Transportation (IIWT) has been the first alternative to reduce the dependency on road transportation in the Netherlands. However, with the growth of freight shipping demand, several problems have been faced by IIWT: small size barge’s congestion and insufficiency of inland terminal handling’s capacity. The idea to...

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...

The results presented in this article identify the role of costs in the scientific and grey freight terminal handling literature and analyses the handling costs of different terminal sizes. The literature review shows that handling costs only play a marginal role in the scientific research in intermodal rail freight terminals (IRT). This is...

An important problem in the assessment of reliability benefits of transport projects is that link level improvements must be translated to network level, so that they can be economically valued based on users’ trips from origins to destinations. For intermodal transport, shipments follow a chain with more than one mode. Generally, this requires...

Hinterland container transport is increasingly identified as an important element in door-to-door transportation of goods in the context of global supply chains. Container terminal operators also continuously seek strategies to distinguish themselves from their competitors by providing dedicated information on containers, transport means and...

The intermodal hinterland transportation of maritime containers is under pressure from port authorities and shippers to achieve a more integrated, efficient network operation. Current optimisation methods in literature yield limited results in practice, though, as the transportation product structure limits the flexibility to optimise network...

The current weaknesses of the conventional intermodal freight transportation system have led to the development of the synchromodal freight transportation concept introduced and piloted in the Netherlands. The innovative concept has the advantage of adding flexibility, cost reduction, and sustainability among other things, into the freight...

The road transportation has been overly used in freight transportation for decades, and it has undesirable effects on the environment. Nowadays, with the ever-increasing awareness of environmental issues which is mainly caused by road freight transportation, intermodal transport is thus promoted in order to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. But,...

This paper focuses on the conception and design of architecture as the work of producing media about buildings and other environmental artifacts. I approach<br/>the questions regarding simplicity and complexity through "interdependence" and "intermodality." I believe the two concepts offer more precise frames of relations and contexts involving...

Seaports are crucial interfaces in global intermodal freight transportation networks. Their complex operations, connectedness to external stakeholders, and increasing volumes of goods to be handled make them vulnerable to internal and external disruptions. Research has shown that disruptions in seaports can cause undesirable ripple effects,...

The Netherlands as the ‘Gateway to Europe’ is highly profitable for the Dutch Ministry of Infrastructure and the Environment (Ministry of I&E). To maintain this position, infrastructure investments are required to remove (potential) bottlenecks and to stimulate intermodal transport. This thesis focuses on two (potential) bottlenecks in the...
