Urban transshipment network is a transshipment solution for last-mile distribution in dense metropolitan regions. In this network, a set of micro hubs located in the urban areas are used for deconsolidating shipments and transferring them from high capacity vehicles to light freight vehicles that eventually deliver to customer locations. Due to...

In 2014 Hietanen envisioned Mobility as a Service (MaaS), which is a global hype ever since. The relatively new mobility concept, MaaS, is suggested to meet the mobility needs of the end-users in a sustainable, affordable and user’s flexible manner (MaaS Alliance, 2019). Even though the MaaS sympathizers claim an improvement for the travelers...

The increasing urbanisation leads to more traffic movements in cities. Since car traffic in particular has a negative impact on the livability in the city, an alternative for car travel should be investigated to discourage car use. A possible alternative for car use could be the integrated bicycle-transit mode. Although more and more research is...

Recently many bicycle sharing programs have been introduced in cities worldwide. The combined use of shared bicycles and public transport could offer an attractive alternative for private motorised vehicles and could contribute to making cities better accessible and liveable. However, it is unsure whether this combination, especially with urban...

The control of a dedicated ITT system operating human driven MTSs and AGVs can be centralized, decentralized or distributed. The objective of this research is to find which controller structure is best suited for controlling a mixed traffic ITT system. In doing so, performance differences will be reviewed to gain insight into the effect of...

The performance of AGS reactors treating municipal wastewater can be optimised by converting influent particulate matter into readily available substrate. This can be done via anaerobic hydrolysis and fermentation of the influent. Anaerobic processes taking place in pressure sewers are not fully understood but show the potential to act as a pre...

To exploit its socio-economic functions, engineering measures are regularly applied in estuaries. Estuaries are, however, known to be very complex systems. Stemming from this complexity is the generation of a so-called estuarine turbidity maximum (ETM), which poses great siltation problems to the engineering measures. An engineering measure,...
