  1. 1. Evaluating and Improving the Transport Efficiency of Logistics Operations

    Author : Jiali Fu; Harilaos Koutsopoulos; Constantinos Antoniou; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; transport efficiency; earthmoving operations; off-peak urban deliveries; simulation; optimization; GPS data; Transportvetenskap; Transport Science;

    Abstract : The thesis focuses on evaluating and improving the transport efficiency of two types of logistics operations in the supply chain.One research area is the production of raw material in construction operations, specifically earthmoving operations. READ MORE

  2. 2. Waste in road transport operations - using information sharing to increase efficiency

    Author : Henrik Sternberg; [2011]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; road transport operations; transport efficiency; ICT; information sharing; transport information systems; freight transportation; motor carrier;

    Abstract : In terms of efficiency, road transport operations have historically seen very little development relative to other supply chain areas and some authors have even referred to freight transportation as the “forgotten factor.” Several studies world-wide have shown a generally low level of efficiency in road transport operations. The U.S. READ MORE

  3. 3. Operating cycle representations for road vehicles

    Author : Pär Pettersson; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; operating cycle; full vehicle simulation; energy usage; transport operation description; road format; CO2 emissions;

    Abstract : This thesis discusses different ways to represent road transport operations mathematically. The intention is to make more realistic predictions of longitudinal performance measures for road vehicles, such as the CO2 emissions. READ MORE

  4. 4. Access management in intermodal freight terminals: The perspective of road haulier operations

    University dissertation from Gothenburg : Chalmers tekniska högskola

    Author : Stefan Jacobsson; [2017]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; road haulier operations; information exchange; differentiation and segmentation strategies; resource efficiency; intermodal freight terminals; access management;

    Abstract : Given its possibilities of switching freight from road to more sustainable modes such as rail, inland water ways and seaways, intermodal freight transportation depends on environmental and economic variables. At the same time, intermodal freight transportation is essentially complex due to the variety of modes of transport and their corresponding actors. READ MORE

  5. 5. Logistics of Earthmoving Operations Simulation and Optimization

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Jiali Fu; Haris Koutsopoulos; Andreas Tapani; [2013]

    Abstract : Earthworks are a fundamental part of heavy construction engineering and involve the moving and processing of the soil surface of earth. Normally, earthmoving operations are carried out during the early stages of heavy construction projects. READ MORE
