A Robust Network Design for Synchromodal Freight Transportation

April 23, 2019

Handling volume at maritime ports in the EU-28 in 2017 reached 4.0 billion tons/190.5 million 20ft containers (Eurostat, 2018). Hinterland transportation network needs to be strengthened to deal with the corresponding demand. The research objective of our first-year PhD student Rafiazka Hilman will be to explore the dynamics and robustness of multiple freight transportation modalities which are available to bring connectivity between the seaport and inland areas: road network for trucks, waterway network for barge and railway network for trains.
