Seaport-inland port dyad dynamics: an investigation of service provisions and intermodal transportation linkages
Artikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift, 2015
This research investigates the operational and logistical dynamics of
seaports and inland ports. Face-to-face semi-structure interviews were
conducted on three seaport-inland port dyads that actively use intermodal
transportation to move freight between the seaports and connected inland ports.
The three dyads are the port of Virginia and Virginia Inland Port (VIP) in the
USA, the Port of Sydney and Minto terminal in Australia, and the Port of
Gothenburg and Hallsberg terminal in Sweden. Findings of this research
provide essential understanding of the range of services provided at the three
inland ports studied, offering a benchmark for ports around the world in
devising their business portfolio.
