Article
Full-text available
Freight transport is an increasingly important contributor to global warming. With the projected development of international trade, finding the most energy efficient ways of service intercontinental trades is a key challenge. China-Europe containerized trades are among the most important in this setting. The typical structure of the supply chains...
Conference Paper
The growth in world trade is doubling every 5 -7 years with a corresponding increase in cargo container movements most of which are handled by seaports. Moving more traffic through the limited area of a seaport can only be achieved by an increase in port performance. Ship owners, terminal operators and forwarding agents each have optimized their pe...
Conference Paper
The Asia-Europe container trade is one of the most important trades in the world in terms of volumes transported. The typical structure of the supply chains associated with this trade is that containers are stuffed in China and the cargos are subsequently cross-docked at major European logistics hubs or DCs in the destination countries for further...
Conference Paper
The Asia-Europe container trade is the most important trade in the world in terms of volumes transported (overtaking the Trans-Pacific trade in 2014). The typical structure of the supply chains associated with this trade is that containers are stuffed in China and the cargo is subsequently cross-docked at a major European logistics hub or closer to...
Article
Full-text available
Previous research on the viability and challenges of commercial shipping along the Northern Sea Route (NSR) has thus far neglected to fully explain the connections between operational models for viable year-round commercial shipping along the NSR and port infrastructure services. In particular, little attention has been paid to the function of port...
Chapter
The Asia-Europe container trade is second only to the Transpacific trade in the world in terms of volumes transported. The typical structure of the supply chains associated with this trade is that containers are stuffed in China and the cargo is subsequently cross-docked at a major European logistics hub or closer to the customer for further shipme...
Chapter
As a response to higher customer demand and increased competition, innovations in port operations is of concern for port customers and port operators. The growth in world trade is doubling every 5–7 years with a corresponding increase in cargo container movements, most of which are handled by seaports. Moving more traffic through the limited area o...
Chapter
Since the start of the current century the world has experienced uncertainties in the form of climate change, epidemics, terrorism threats and increasing economic upheaval. These uncertainties create risks for the proper functioning of logistics management and have stimulated research into the development of resilient and sustainable container supp...
Technical Report
Full-text available
An agent-based model is developed using the methodology discussed in Section II. Based on the research question, the authors propose a model to simulate the decision-making process of shipowners, regarding the installation and use of WPT on their ships. There are four mobile agents in the model, including shipowners and the technology providers fo...
Article
In the typical structure of the supply chains associated with the Asia-Europe container trade, containers are stuffed in China, and the cargo is subsequently cross-docked at a major European logistics hub or a distribution centre closer to the customer for further distribution to the final retailing points. However, this solution may not be optimal...
Conference Paper
A common problem in the design of liner service systems for intercontinental container flows between regions is to determine which regions to service with direct calls by large vessels and which regions to service by feeder vessels from transhipment ports. The present rapid development of dry ports and dedicated hinterland transport systems can be...

Project
Research Council of Norway Project number: 320266 - KSPSAMARBEID20 The project’s main goal: Development of an innovative, efficient, cost-effective and environmentally sustainable maritime transport and logistics system with effective intermodal transport connections on the Arctic coasts of Norway. The project’s main hypothesis: The future growth potential of northern urban centers and their industries on both sides of the border largely depends on an effective maritime transport and logistics system(s) — and a competitive export industry with high transport volumes requires effective ports.
Project
Transshipment hubs in the northern latitudes could add a new dimension to global trade and be a catalyst for increased regional and industrial development in the High North. Increased transshipment simplifies the transport network allowing it to deal with increased volume resulting in reduced shipping costs. Such hubs could provide cargo storage facilities and various port and industrial services for shipping in the Eurasian Arctic. The research will analyze which market conditions and infrastructure and logistics system is required to develop efficient transshipment hubs in the Arctic. The research will analyze the significance of strategic location and connectivity, natural conditions, storage and port services, overall design criteria and infrastructure components of an innovative Arctic transshipment hub, including both on-shore and offshore infrastructure components.

https://northsearegion.eu/wasp/output-library-publications/ Decarbonisation of shipping is the greatest maritime challenge of our time and demand for low carbon solutions is growing. Direct wind propulsion along with secondary renewables: windsourced ammonia, hydrogen and other fuels and batteries, are all pieces in this decarbonisation puzzle. The high potential for wind energy in North Sea Region (NSR) and innovative, automated WPTs (Wind Propulsion Technologies), such as flettner rotors, suction wings, and rigid sails directly harvesting this. Vast resource will steer the industry onto that low carbon pathway. Fuel price rises, instability, emission reduction directives, carbon pricing, IMO & EU GHG strategies are all making WPTs increasingly commercially viable. WPT can be installed on existing vessels or optimised new builds. WPTs are future proof and offer quick solutions, saving 5-20% and possibly up to 30% fuel & emissions savings as retrofits. Promising initial installations are now in operation, like on the RoRo MV Estraden, LR2 Tanker Pelican & Fehn Pollux, inspiring the market to trial new WPT. At present WPT operational expertise is weak and fragmented among different players in the NSR. For further market uptake, 3rd party validation of capital and operational performance is an important precondition. This will be delivered by WASP; setting up and connecting WPT sea trials, providing validated 3rd party data and improving WPT concepts, thus enabling WPT market penetration and contributing to greener NSR sea transport.
