Multimodal Transport Systems

Qualification goals

The aim of the module is to provide an overview on intermodal transport and logistics systems with a particular focus on methods for planning, design and coordination of such systems.

In particular, students shall be able to describe, explain, apply and analyze modes and systems in transport and logistics. Moreover, students can recall, interpret and evaluate key performance indicators for unimodal and intermodal systems. Regarding planning and design, students are able to characterize, apply and differentiate methods with respect to the area of application and assess suitability of these methods. Last, students are able to describe, categorize and evaluate methods of coordination regarding intermodality.
