1. Thoen, Sebastiaan (author). A behavioral shipment-based model of freight tour formation.

Degree: 2018, Delft University of Technology

Tour formation is a distinguishing feature of freight transportation. An increasing amount of research is dedicated to the consideration of tour formation in freight simulation models, but these tour formation models lack statistical calibration on empirical data, do not represent shipments explicitly, or focus on a narrow segment of freight transportation. This paper presents a novel shipment‐based approach to model tour formation behavior. We developed an algorithm that constructs tours through iterative allocation of an additional shipment. Two choice models provide an empirical foundation to this algorithm. Parameters of these choice models are estimated on a dataset with information regarding over two million shipments. This information is gathered automatically from the planning systems of carriers transporting goods in the Netherlands. With this model we are able to reproduce observed tour patterns excellently for a given set of shipments. In addition, the model considers many objectives and constraints that determine the tour formation process and acknowledges differences between goods, vehicle, and location types. For example, shipments at ports tend to be transported with direct tours, while tours starting at a distribution center have more stops. This model can be applied in a shipment‐based freight simulation framework to construct tours for large third‐party carriers in the Netherlands.

2. ter Laag, Maya (author). Modelling urban freight transport in the context of decarbonising transport in Europe: A case study of the Groot-Rijnmond urban area with possibilities for model transferability.

Degree: 2019, Delft University of Technology

Urban freight transport is a significant cause of CO2 emissions. This creates the need to implement CO2 mitigation measures for freight transport in cities. The International Transport Forum (ITF) is currently working on an EU-funded programme, the Decarbonising Transport initiative, to assess CO2 mitigation measures. However, there is no model yet that is suitable to analyse urban freight transport on a European level. Therefore, the research question of this thesis is: How can a model for urban freight transport in the urban region of Rotterdam (Groot-Rijnmond) be created, that allows for estimation of CO2 impacts of policy measures for decarbonisation and that can be transferred to other European urban areas? To answer this question, a literature study has been done to set the context of the project. This was followed by an identification of available data sources for European freight transport and the creation of a transferable modelling methodology. Based on the data and the established methodology, a model has been estimated. With this model, seven policy scenarios have been tested.

3. Nasir, Mesay (author). A Firm Population Synthesis Model for Urban Freight Transport Demand Modeling: A Part of Micro-simulation Freight Transport Model for the Province of South Holland.

Degree: 2019, Delft University of Technology

The agent - based modeling of freight transport that captures both the variety of actors and their complex decisions has not made as much progress as in passenger transport. Efforts towards agent-based models must include firms. However, the synthesis of a firm population in the context of urban freight transport has gotten little attention in literature. This research focuses on synthesis of a firm population for urban freight transport demand model. It uses literature review to define the firm agents and specifies a general population synthesis model based on iterative proportional updating (IPU). The model is then implemented on a case study on the province of South Holland. The utilized data is open, free-of-charge data offered by the Central Bureau for Statistics (CBS) of The Netherlands. The synthesis uses a sample-free, indicator-based approach to initialize the IPU-based model. The results show correlation between firms’ distribution and urban density of neighborhoods for most of the population. However, the suitability of a neighborhood to host a firm type has a more nuanced definition that cannot be encapsulated in a single indicator. More robust, economic-sector specific indicators are needed to disaggregate firm agents to neighborhoods and finer levels. Further research into IPU-based, sample-free firm synthesis models is recommended.
