On 15 March 2018, TRAIL PhD researcher Hamid Saeedi will defend his PhD thesis ‘Network-Level Analysis of the Market and Performance of Intermodal Freight Transport’ at Delft University of Technology.
Intermodal Freight Transport (IFT) as an alternative to road transport has been stimulated by European Commission. However, despite all efforts, the market share of IFT is limited. A fair assumption is that this limited market share could be improved by a competitive market for IFT services and improving the performance of IFT networks. In this thesis, the market structure and performance of IFT service from the network perspective are analyzed.
