Intermodal freight transport planning - A receding horizon control approach


"This paper investigates intermodal freight transport planning problems among deep-sea terminals and inland terminals in hinterland haulage for a horizontally fully integrated intermodal freight transport operator at the tactical container flow level. An intermodal freight transport network (IFTN) model is first developed to capture the key characteristics of intermodal freight transport such as t..." [More...]

Centralization or decentralization: A comparative analysis of port regulation modes


"This paper studies the comparison of two kinds of port regulation modes - the centralization mode and the decentralization mode - using principal-agent theory and dynamic game theory. The optimal tariffs, port capacities and port efficiency levels under these two regulation modes are determined. The theoretical results are applied to the container terminals in Port of Shanghai in China. Sensitivit..." [More...]

Towards quality-aware control of perishable goods in synchromodal transport networks


"Innovative technological developments are leading to smart ways for producing food more efficiently and of higher quality. Nevertheless, lots of perishable goods are wasted because of inefficiencies during the subsequent transport process. The amount of wastage could be reduced via better planning and control of transport activities. Perishable goods logistics can be better supported by real-time ..." [More...]

Closed-loop coordination of inland vessels operations in large seaports using hybrid logic-based Benders decomposition


"This paper addresses two coordination problems that exist in the waterborne transport in large seaports, the long time of stay of inland vessels and insufficient terminal and quay crane planning with respect to their sailing schedules. A novel coordination model is proposed and tackled using logic-based Benders decomposition and Large Neighborhood Search. In addition, a closed-loop perspective is ..." [More...]

The cargo fare class mix problem for an intermodal corridor - Revenue management in synchromodal container transportation


"The intermodal hinterland transportation of maritime containers is under pressure from port authorities and shippers to achieve a more integrated, efficient network operation. Current efforts for improving this have yielded limited results, though, as the transportation product structure limits the flexibility of transportation providers to optimise network logistics. Synchromodality aims to overc..." [More...]

Supervisory nonlinear MPC for emergency voltage control using pattern search


"The design of a higher-layer controller using model predictive control (MPC) is considered. The higher-layer controller uses MPC to determine set-points for controllers in a lower control layer. In this paper the use of an object-oriented model of the system for making predictions is proposed. When employing such an object-oriented prediction model the MPC problem is a nonlinear, non-smooth optimi..." [More...]
