Infrastructure enhancements and related investments have a crucial role in the process of regional integration, as clearly highlighted by the TEN-T (Trans-European Network in Transport) policy. Through the funding of several projects, in fact, the European Commission promotes the interoperability and efficiency of the European transport system by r...

In order to reduce marine transportation times and related costs, as well as the environmental impacts, an alternative multimodal route to the current Suez-Gibraltar-North Sea corridor for the containers shipped from Far and Middle East was identified as potentially very effective. A key operational problem to achieve this result is the capacity an...

Risk analysis is a collection of methods widely used in many industrial sectors. In the transport sector it has been particularly used for air transport applications. The reasons for this wide use are well-known; risk analysis allows us to approach the safety theme in a stochastic – rather than deterministic – way, it forces us to break down the sy...

A freight terminal is a key node in a transportation network and the transit time of containers through this terminal represents one of the most relevant bottlenecks in logistic chains. The system performance reduction and the corresponding increase of transit time are often due to the increase of the freight flow without a corresponding increase o...

... The disadvantage of this position is the neglect of other railway infrastructure systems. The performed risk analysis in [19] led to the solution using stochastic rather than deterministic methods in assessing traffic safety, however, based on economic indicators of losses. The paper shows the possibilities of transition to the railway system of risk analysis methods that are currently used for other transport and technological systems. ...
