The purpose of the ‘Complexity in Transport & Logistics’ programme is to encourage innovative, multidisciplinary research that will generate revolutionary ideas for logistics systems and contribute to new theories and innovation in the field of complex systems. Within the research projects researchers , companies and other stakeholders in the field of logistics work together to align research and practise.

The following research proposal was granted:

Complexity Methods for Predictive Synchromodality (Comet-PS)

Synchromodality is a promising concept that enables us to optimize the efficiency of freight transportation supply chains, one of the key drivers of the Dutch economy. In this project we develop and evaluate methods to exploit the full potential of synchromodality, leading to dramatic reductions in cost and emissions.

The private partners in this consortium are: Port of Amsterdam, Tata Steel Ijmuiden, Combi-Terminal Twente, Air Cargo Netherlands, and TNO.
