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

    Författare :Sönke Behrends; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    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 University of Technology; []
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; 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 University of Technology; []
    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.

  5. 5. Quantitative Assessment of Intelligent Transport Systems for Road Freight Transport

    Författare :Gideon Mbiydzenyuy; Blekinge Tekniska Högskola; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Transport telematic services; Assessment; Freight transport; Quantitative; Modeling; Decision support systems;

    Sammanfattning : In this thesis, methods for using computer-based models as support tools for assessing Transport Telematic Services (TTSs) are studied. Such assessments provide one way to understand how TTSs can address problems caused by transportation, such as accidents, emissions, and energy consumption. LÄS MER
