Evaluation of the dry port concept from an environmental perspective
Artikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift, 2007

This study evaluates the dry port concept from an environmental perspective using modelling and simulation. A model of a transport system, with and without a dry port, is created and the results of the simulations compared. The benefits of the dry port implementation are defined from an environmental perspective; calculated CO2 emissions are approximately 25% lower with an implemented dry port for the chosen case, while congestion and truck waiting times at the terminal are significantly reduced.
