Modeling of port - freight village systems and loading units’ tracking functions


The study starts from the applications of

tracking to the freight transport and faces the contribution

to the inter-modality of the real time load units identification.

The main problems hindering the effective development

of intermodal transport are identified and tackled by

means of operational proposals simulated by an original

model, tuned and validated on the Rivalta Scrivia freight

village and its integrated operation with the maritime container

terminal in Genoa Voltri. The results allow the model

validation and provide with interesting operational suggestion

of wide applicability concerning operational and technological

measures to increase the effectiveness of freight

villages and port - inland terminal integrated systems;

moreover, the most promising application areas for these

integrated systems in Italy are identified.
