  1. 1. Safety at Rail-Road Level Crossings

    Author : Mohammad Shahriari; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : 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

  2. 2. Access management for road hauliers and rail operators in intermodal freight terminals

    Author : Stefan Jacobsson; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; 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

  3. 3. The Internalization of External Effects in Swedish Transport Policy - A Comparison Between Road and Rail Traffic

    Author : Lars Hansson; Internationella miljöinstitutet; []
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Commercial and industrial economics; rail traffic; road traffic; transport policy; internalization; External effects; pricing-relevant costs; Industriell ekonomi;

    Abstract : Transport is a key factor for economic growth. It has enabled both the economic scale of production and an increase in competition. No one can question this role of transportation. There is, however, a back-side to the coin: the environmental challenge. READ MORE

  4. 4. Simulation Studies for Improved Efficiency in Road and Rail Freight Transports

    Author : Ingrid Johansson; Markus Bohlin; Oskar Fröidh; Behzad Kordnejad; Carl-William Palmqvist; C. Tyler Dick; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; heavy-duty vehicle platooning; road traffic simulation; intelligent transport systems; optimal control; longitudinal cruise control; fuel economy; railway traffic simulation; microscopic simulation; macroscopic simulation; freight trains; early departures; capacity; railway stations; strategic planning; timetable compression; UIC Code 406; Transportsystem; Transport Systems;

    Abstract : The demand for road and rail freight transport continues to grow with the expanding economy, while the climate crisis requires reduction in greenhouse gas emissions. Therefore, tools and solutions for reducing fossil fuel use and enabling more efficient use of infrastructure are needed. READ MORE

  5. 5. Integrated Product Service Offerings for Rail and Road Infrastructure : Reviewing Applicability in Sweden

    Author : Sofia Lingegård; Mattias Lindahl; Niclas Svensson; Daniel Brissaud; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; NATURVETENSKAP; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; NATURAL SCIENCES; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Integrated Product Service Offerings; Product Service Systems; long-term contracts; risk; life-cycle perspective; resource-efficiency;

    Abstract : This research aims to explore and propose a more effective management of rail and road infrastructure and the possibility of a more resource-efficient road and rail infrastructure by applying business models based on performance and a life-cycle perspective.There is a lack of efficiency in the Swedish rail and road infrastructure industries - at the same time as the availability of the rail tracks and roads is essential.
