Generic framework for transport network designs: applications and treatment in intermodal freight transport literature
Responsible organisation
2007 (English)In: Transport reviews, ISSN 0144-1647, E-ISSN 1464-5327, Vol. 27, no 6, p. 733-749Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

Six principles for the design of transport systems are described, including direct link, corridor, hub-and-spoke, connected hubs, static routes, and dynamic routes. The designs are theoretically discussed, defining the operational character of each design and their application in passenger, freight and rail freight transport. The theory is then applied to intermodal freight transport by comparing the terminology used in the paper with that in the scientific literature. The advantages of using a generic terminology over contextual ones are identified from the perspectives of researchers, commercial operators and policy-makers.
