Location analysis for the modal shift of palletized goods to the West-European inland waterways

Onderzoeksoutput: Conference paper


The distribution of the palletized goods creates many truck movements. The negative impacts caused by this road transport affect the society, the economy and the environment. An innovative solution to overcome these negative impacts is to bundle the transport of palletized goods over the inland waterways, and organize the last mile of distribution via a limited number of trans-shipment hubs. A feasibility analysis for the European transport flows was performed with the location analysis model LAMBTOP. The model calculates, on the basis of these transport flows, the optimal number and the optimal locations of the trans-shipment hubs, as well as the overall potential modal shift and the potential turnover(in ton) of every hub.
