Resource description

This master thesis focuses on a systems comparison of intermodal transport concerning road and inland waterways. Moreover, the master thesis discusses and analyses the potential and importance of inland waterways for the inland transportation of containers from European sea ports to European markets. By doing so, the aim of the thesis was to highlight the parameters of the inland waterway system as well as cost parameters for inland ships carrying containers. The master thesis was compiled in order to answer the following questions properly: Can inland ships provide market-oriented and competitive solutions for the transportation of containers from sea ports to European markets and which cost parameters have to be taken into account for inland ships carrying containers? How does a river information system (RIS) support inland ships by making it more attractive for shippers and forwarders? Regarding transportation of containers from sea ports to inland, which parameters of the inland waterway system are of significance and determining? Applying intelligent information systems and planning techniques combined with a growing network of intermodal terminals, inland ships offer innovative and competitive solutions by being an integrated transport system, providing tailor-made and door-todoor logistics services. Considering that road and rail transport are already suffering from chronic congestion, inland waterways' key competitiveness lies in its congestionfree network. However, the infrastructure of the inland waterway network does only meet regionally the requirements for an efficient and seamless container transport and therefore hampers the potential of the inland waterway network as a whole.
