  1. 1. Urban freight transport sustainability - the interaction of urban freight and intermodal transport

    Författare :Sönke Behrends; Chalmers tekniska högskola; []
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; modal shift; urban sustainability; transport planning; pre- and post haulage; rail freight; sustainable freight transport; Framework for Strategic Sustainable Development; urban freight transport; longer and heavier vehicles; intermodal road-rail transport;

    Sammanfattning : Intermodal road-rail transport (IRRT) has a significant urban dimension that affects the environmental benefits and the modal shift potential of rail freight. A sustainable modal shift, i.e. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Transport Efficiency: Analysing the Transport Service Triad

    Författare :Victor Eriksson; Chalmers tekniska högskola; []
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; transport service; transport efficiency; activities; freight transport; transport service triad; triad; business relationships; actors; industrial network approach; resources;

    Sammanfattning : This thesis deals with transport services and transport efficiency. There are growing environmental concerns for many industries and the freight transport industry in particular faces challenges in reducing its CO2 emissions. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Sustainable Freight Transport from an Urban Perspective

    Författare :Sönke Behrends; Chalmers tekniska högskola; []
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; sustainable transport; urban freight transport; intermodal transport; rail transport; Sustainability;

    Sammanfattning : The trend of growing road freight transport causes significant negative impacts on the society, economy and environment. A substantial share of the road freight sector’s externalities is imposed on urban areas because cities are the main destination for freight flows either for production, consumption or for transfer to other locations.

  4. 4. Transport service triads in supply networks

    Författare :Victor Eriksson; Chalmers tekniska högskola; []
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; performance; embeddedness; network; supply chain; service; freight; transport; triad; relationship; sustainability;

    Sammanfattning : This doctoral thesis deals with the embeddedness of transport services in supply networks. The exchange of transport services depends on the exchange of goods since exchange of goods generates demand for transport services. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Driverless trucks in the Swedish freight transport system : An analysis of future impacts on the transport system and the emerging innovation system

    Författare :Albin Engholm; Anna Pernestål; Ida Kristoffersson; Maria Oscott; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Driverless Trucks; Automated Driving; Total Cost of Ownership; Freight Transport Modeling; Innovation Systems; Machine Design; Maskinkonstruktion;

    Sammanfattning : A large-scale introduction of driverless trucks could start taking place during the next decade. While this could bring several economic benefits for freight transport actors and society, it may also change the freight transport system and exacerbate the negative effects of road transport.
