The importance of frequency for combined transport of containers
In this paper a comparison is made between direct road haulage and combined transport (inland navigation with oncarriage by truck) for the transport of containers from a seaport to the hinterland. The analysis is based on the concept of total logistics costs, a central concept in the theory of logistics. It is shown that the frequency of sailings between the seaport and the inland terminal is a key factor determining the competitiveness of combined transport vis-à-vis direct road haulage.
