Intermodal Transportation, SimconT, Business Cost, Combined Transport and Environmental Effect


Intermodal transportation is the transportation between two modes like road and rail. It also known as combined transportation system. The aim of this study is to develop a model called SimConT model, or simulation container terminal model for intermodal transportation system. Two modes i.e., rail and road mode is considered to develop this model. The model can also be used as a tool to calculate the costs and environmental effects of a given transport system. The potential of intermodal road-rail transport was determined using the SimConT model. An input data set was developed based on the collected data from Mahuva port. The output data of this SimConT model is compared with the data of Mundra port. By using this intermodal transportation model business economic costs and social economic costs can be lowered, as well as harmful environmental effects can be controlled. SimConT model can be better used for identification optimal route for delivery of goods, optimization of the use of resources, for improvement of existing model or database system.
