Operational Coordination in Intermodal Hinterland Transport as Support for Managing Operational Disruptions – An Information Processing Perspective
Artikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift, 2021

Intermodal solutions, compared to the use of only road, in port hinterland transport involve numerous actors and activities that increase operational uncertainty. The purpose of this paper is to investigate the role of information, through an information processing perspective, for operational coordination in supporting operational disruption management in intermodal hinterland transport. A qualitative case study approach is adopted to obtain an in-depth understanding of operational coordination in a hinterland transport system. The results provide insights into how the actors use information processing for coordination to influence the mitigation of the impact from operational disruptions. The paper supports managers in improving disruption management by understand the processing of real-time information in the coordination for intermodal hinterland transport solutions. This paper provides input for operational disruptions using information for coordination on a day-to-day basis via an information processing perspective in contrast to the predominant coordination at a strategic level in the literature.
