- to demonstrate review versions and overview frameworks (MCDA; Discrete selection research; Collaborative exams; Geovisualization applied sciences) in theoretical phrases and by way of case studies.

Example text

Managers of the shipper, the carrier and/or the intermediaries may make the transport choices such as the mode choice decision. Interactive decision-making (and especially research methods for dealing with this) is discussed in HolguínVeras et al. [8] and de Jong [9]. In general, it is recognised that the shipper is the most common decision-maker for mode choice, also for transports that are actually contracted out to transport suppliers (carriers). g. a road haulage firm that provides the first road transport in a road-sea-road transport chain).

Similar patterns for 2010 and 2011 can be observed for road and inland waterway transport in the EU27, whereas rail freight has grown both in 2010 and 2011 by 7 %. However, the US, Russia and China account for nearly 80 % of total estimated global rail freight transport [13]. In emerging economies, such as China and India, freight transport by road has been growing in all years in the period 2008–2011 In van de Riet et al. [14] and de Jong and Ben-Akiva [6] the key drivers of freight transport are identified.

The available data on economic linkages and transactions are in terms of PC flows, not in terms of flows between producers and transshipment points, or between transshipment points and consumers. Changes in logistics processes such as changes in the number and the location of depots, and in logistics costs, have a direct impact on the composition of the transport chains. This can result in different OD flows, that would only indirectly impact the economic and trade patterns (and hence the PC flows).
