Transportation patterns of fairs: A case study
Paper in proceedings, 2007

The successful execution of numerous projects necessitate that material be moved to and from project sites in a timely manner. To achieve this, it is important that unloading and loading areas do not become bottlenecks. To facilitate planning of operations in these areas, transportation patterns for fairs have been analysed. The analysis is focused on the balance between inbound and outbound transports and the distribution of transports in time. Findings show that inbound and outbound transports are separated in time and that considerable imbalances exist between them. This can cause problems when it comes to utilizing transport and handling resources.
