Abstract

This chapter provides an introduction to transportation management. In Sect. 21.1 we describe the basic elements of transportation network design, comprising the selection of modes, transportation units, loading units, and the timing of transportation. A brief introduction to intermodal transportation is used to illustrate the relevance of transportation management in modern logistics. With Sect. 21.2 we move to the advanced topic of orchestrating transportation via intermodal networks by introducing the concept of synchromodal transportation. Furthermore, it highlights several issues specific to contemporary long-haul transportation and last-mile transportation. Section 21.3 presents various state-of-the-art research trends related to the management of transportation in integrated networks. We discuss applications of multi-criteria analysis, multi-agent simulation, and conclude with research directions for the construction of the Physical Internet.
