Management, design and evaluation of sustainable freight and logistics systems

The proposed research project will focus on developing methods and models for management and evaluation of integrated inventory and sustainable freight transportation systems. Special attention will be given to supply chain strategies for shipment consolidation, lateral transshipments and combinations of different modes of transportation. This means that the project fits well in the area of New management models, concepts and tools supporting sustainable logistics and co-modality in a Nordic approach as specified in the call. The results in terms of analytical models and decision support tools can be of direct use for companies that aspire to achieve cost efficient and sustainable supply chain solutions.
