Project: Assessment of quality differences between freight transport modes

project duration
15-DEC-01 – 30-JUN-05
This research endeavours to integrate qualitative factors like reliability, safety, information, flexibility of response, damages, etc. into a global analysis of the factors that affect the choices of freight transport modes. Until now, most of the available researches have been focused on costs and/or prices and time of transports, and what is known on other decision factors is mostly circumstantial.
