Evaluation of intermodal transport chains
2008 (English)Conference paper (Refereed)
Intermodal transport chains include several transport modes and several instances of handling at terminals. This means a specific cost structure, time consumption and a risk that goods will be damaged. The aim is to find the weakest link in intermodal transport chains, which can be critical when increasing combined transportation.
The method is to map and analyse a number of intermodal transport chains and investigate each link in the chains with regard to time, cost, risk of damage, and administrative process.
Different transport chains will be chosen with different modes, terminal handling methods and distances. Shock and vibration will be measured in loading units during handling and transportation. A terminal cost model will be developed and interviews held to determine customer experience.
