    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; rail operators; turnaround times; intermodal freight transport; information exchange; road hauliers; information services; intermodal freight terminals; Access management;

    Abstract : A pivotal element in the transport industry, intermodal freight transport, is rather complex due to the numerous transport modes and actors involved. Terminal operators in intermodal freight transport face major challenges to provide seamless flows of containers via their terminals. READ MORE

  2. 2. Safety at Rail-Road Level Crossings

    Author : Mohammad Shahriari; [1993]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; driver behaviour; risk analysis; traffic safety; rail road crossings; safety;

    Abstract : Safety related to traffic at rail/road level crossings has long been a major issue for rail operators all over the world. Eliminating these level crossings entirely would be a desirable solution. However converting them into separate types is very expensive and not reasonable in many cases, e.g. READ MORE

  3. 3. Collaborative Tracking and Tracing – A Supply Chain Perspective

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

    University dissertation from Luleå : Luleå tekniska universitet

    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
