Global Logistics Network Modelling and Policy

Global Logistics Network Modelling and Policy provides guidelines on quality policy, covering investments, management and planning for port and hinterland infrastructure, roads, railways and inland waterway ports. The book first describes the authors’ concept and formulation models, followed by a description and analysis of the applied data. As shipping companies fiercely compete in an effort to achieve greater efficiency and impact infrastructure policy and plan for the entire supply chain, they need tactics that drive quality transportation policy and new ways to model and simulate worldwide cargo movements, all while estimating demand and capacity of systems. This book provides quantitative tools for modeling, analysis, and simulation of worldwide, inter-modal cargo movement – helping forecast the impacts of logistics and related policies in each region of the world. It covers useful applications for every region of the world, allowing policymakers to tailor results for their own specific uses. Delivers sophisticated quantitative tools for modeling simulations, providing powerful analysis of global intermodal cargo movements Features examples of tools applied to logistical policy situations in every region of the world Serves as a bridge between theory and practice in the field of freight transportation research Provides detailed, data-supported case studies and real-world examples for transportation modelers, planners and policymakers
