Intermodal Transport Policy: A GIS-based Intermodal Transport Policy Evaluation Model

ByEthem Pekin

This doctoral research has addressed the intermodal transport policy measures through the main research question: “What are the impacts of the policies to stimulate the growth of intermodal transport?” Considering the main research question in this doctoral research, the LAMBIT (Location Analysis Model for Belgian Intermodal Terminals) model is further developed to explore the relative attractiveness of three transportation modes (unimodal road, rail and inland waterway transport) through a price (cost) minimisation model. Several policy scenarios are analysed such as subsidy schemes, internalisation of external costs and fuel price increases. The methodology was also applied to Turkey in order to see if it is possible to use it in an other setting. Promotor: Prof. dr. Cathy Macharis Vrije Universiteit Brussel
