Model of Container Transport System in Long Distance Freightage – Analysis and Optimalization of Supply Chain
Languages of publication
This article is about the integration idea of rail and road long-distance transport to increase the efficiency of the transport chain. The article compared two transport models - conventional (using road transport) and intermodal transport (using road and rail transport). The proposed intermodal model uses the Container Transport System for freight transport in relation: consolidation point (company) – container terminal – rail transport – container terminal – deconsolidation point and radial transport system of road transport to ensure door-to-door delivery. The model was examined to optimize cost, time, capacity and environmental factors. Moreover, in the article the main features of both models were identified and compared. Freight rates and the prices given in the article are consistent with the actual rates charged by carriers, but they are not an offer.
