Sirikijpanichkul, Ackchai & Ferreira, Luis (2008) Modelling Impacts of Urban Freight Terminal Location Decisions. In Mao, Baohua, Tian, Zongzhong, Huang, Haijun, & Gao, Ziyou (Eds.)

This paper presents the results of research into the evaluation of alternative scenarios for freight terminal location in an urban area in Australia. The research combines the use of a strategic transport model for overall freight demand forecasting, with cost assessment of the specific impacts of locating future terminals in selected areas. Outputs of the model were used to evaluate the impacts of urban freight terminal location decisions on all traffic in the road network. The work includes freight trip generation, using strategic transport modelling software (VISUM) to forecast future patterns of urban freight flows, calibration of the model, and option testing using a case-study in South East Queensland to predict the transport cost impacts of several locations for intermodal terminals.

Search Google Scholar™

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
