Title

An analysis of intermodal transportation mode selection considering stochastic system parameters

Abstract

"In recent years, intermodal selection has become an important issue in the logistics system. However, it is not clear how to select intermodal mode in previous research. Therefore, the objective of the study is to propose a methodology to choose the most appropriate modes by maximizing performances. The combinations of mode considered in this study include truck-rail, truck-air, truck-barge, truck-ship, and truckload baseline. This study provides initial cost break-even point analysis that is consistent with the previous literature."--Abstract, page iii.
