  1. 1. Freight Transportation Operations and Information Sharing

    Author : Henrik Sternberg; [2008]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; RFID; Logistics; Information sharing; Information systems; Transportation;

    Abstract : Freight transportation operations are becoming increasingly complex due to an escalating number of actors and infrastructure capacity bottlenecks. Today’s transportation operations rely on static procedures instead of being actively controlled to achieve effective synchronization of the actors’ operations, resulting in slow responses to events and long waiting times in the transportation setup.

  4. 4. Intermodal Road-Rail Transportation for Express Transport Services

    University dissertation from Göteborg : BAS Publishing

    Author : Sofia Ohnell; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; transport services; Intermodal transportation; transport systems; modelling; express transportation;

    Abstract : Express transport services are produced in highly modularised transport systems, a fact that implies that one subsystem can be exchanged for another without causing a need for major changes in other parts of the system. Express goods are not common on a large scale in freight railway transport systems, as those are often not considered reliable enough for time-critical goods. READ MORE

  5. 5. Assessment of Telematic Systems for Road Freight Transport

    University dissertation from Karlskrona : Blekinge Institute of Technology

    Author : Gideon Mbiydzenyuy; Blekinge Tekniska Högskola.; [2010]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Transportation; telematics; architectures; analysis; optimization; clustering; net present value;

    Abstract : The focus of this thesis is the assessment of telematic systems for road freight transport from a planning perspective. The aim is to support strategic decisions related to architectural choices for such systems, with the possibility to achieve synergies by supporting multiple telematic services. READ MORE
