Abstract:Intermodal transport is receiving increased attention due to the ever-increasing demand for container transport in national and international trade, concerns on the sustainable development of the economy and the environment, and the recurring road congestion problems. In this paper, we first briefly introduce intermodal transport networks. Next, approaches for modeling intermodal transport networks are discussed. Considering different dynamic behaviors of different types of transport networks (e.g., road networks, railway networks, waterway networks, etc.), we propose a general framework for modeling intermodal transport networks. In particular, a generic intermodal transport network model is formulated for the evolution of container flows in nodes and links taking into account time dependencies. Finally, future work is discussed.
