The new business case for inbound transportation management

The new business case for inbound transportation management

While the benefits of inbound transportation management are substantial, it is not an exact science; and the last thing you want to do is take on a new process that introduces a whole new set of inefficiencies. So another important step is to look for a TMS solution with embedded business intelligence. This will mitigate your risk and allow you to take control of your inbound transportation processes systematically. With embedded business intelligence you can run “what if” scenarios and make incremental changes, testing the results and measuring the financial impact of your decisions before you implement on a large scale. Once you are a fully operational, you can fine-tune and optimize your operations for continuous improvement.

RPV/UAV Surveillance for Transportation Management and Security

RPV/UAV Surveillance for Transportation Management and Security

An example of a tactical ITS application for UASs is that of on-scene traffic, incident or emergency management. In the event of a traffic incident or general emergency, UASs can be used as ”force mul- tipliers” for law enforcement and emergency response personnel. In these instances the aerial vehicles can provide services such as mobile-local communication nodes or simply be platforms for Electro- Optical (EO) or Infrared (IR) camera. The recent collapse of the I-35 Bridge in Minneapolis, MN provides an example where the use of UASs would serve as a ”force multiplier” for law enforcement and emergency personnel. In this case the UAS could have been used to provide platform for contin- uous video coverage. This coverage could be used to optimize and organize the rescue and recovery efforts; provide continuous communications between on-site personal and those far away; and finally as camera platforms for photogrammetry reconstruction of the incident. In the case of terrorist attacks that involve, for example, toxic materials appropriately instrumented UAS can be used to map out the boundary of the toxic materials and monitor their spread. Thus, they will prevent the risking the lives of highly skilled personnel that would otherwise have to fly aircraft especially under hostile or toxic conditions.

TRANSPORTATION MANAGEMENT PALMERSTON NORTH PLAN

Local roads with traffic volumes higher than this should be considered for traffic management schemes, such as kerb extensions at the entry points and the use of raised thresholds or similar treatments to reduce the amount of through traffic in the street. On particularly long roads, higher volumes may occur as the street services more houses. The Section “Traffic Management Guidelines”, discusses methods of reducing through traffic from residential streets including detailed design standards for kerb extensions and raised thresholds. The introduction of flush medians, angle parking, edge lines and cycle lanes all reduce the carriageway widths and assist in discouraging unrelated and unnecessary through movements.

Technical economical indicators in the sugar beet transportation management

Technical economical indicators in the sugar beet transportation management

Money is motive power of the world economy therefore result of this work is transportation sys- tems with the lowest unit costs per transported material unit. It is necessary to realize, that the ef- fectiveness of new and expensive transportation machinery resides in the high annual utilization. Annual utilization can be achieved only in the con- ditions of extra business utilization by the form of services. Efficiency is important in the agricultural transportation. High transportation efficiency is a guarantee of the costs per production unit decre- ment. Therefore it is necessary to analyze the basic factors influencing the efficiency of vehicles in ag- ricultural companies.

Transportation Planning Certification Review of the Metropolitan Transportation Planning Process for the Hartford Transportation Management Area

Transportation Planning Certification Review of the Metropolitan Transportation Planning Process for the Hartford Transportation Management Area

While current statute and transportation planning regulations do not make direct references to land use or livability planning, the transportation planning process is required to be coordinated with “planned growth” and similar activities that exist in the region. In addition, MPOs and State DOTs must, when appropriate, consult with other agencies that have responsibility for land use and resource management. Also, Metropolitan planning regulations (23 CFR 450.306) require that the scope of the transportation planning process include consideration of both “motorized and non-motorized users”. Furthermore, planning must “Protect and enhance the environment, promote energy conservation, improve the quality of life, and promote consistency between transportation improvements and State and local planned growth and economic development patterns”, as well as “Enhance the integration and connectivity of the transportation system, across and between modes, for people and freight.”

Designing a School Transportation Management System with Public Transportation Capabilities

Designing a School Transportation Management System with Public Transportation Capabilities

In North Dakota, there has been widespread and growing concern about inefficient operation of school fleets and provision of transportation to students. In recent years, many of the state’s rural communities have seen significant demographic changes including dramatic decreases in student age populations, enrollment, and school bus ridership. These trends are, in general, expected to continue. The presence of buses filled to less than capacity on rural highways and roads is a cause for criticism, appropriate or not, in many North Dakota communities. In many districts, the decline in enrollment and ridership has been paired with a steady or decreasing tax base and rising costs of education and related programs, including student transport.

optional, resulted in reduced federal involvement with the systems and an increase in the states’ role. The states are continuing to develop and implement most systems, but they are now doing so according to their own needs and time frames rather than by following federal requirements. As the states proceed, however, they are facing technical problems that they would like further federal help in addressing. While the management systems are no longer mandatory, we believe there continues to be a role for FHWA and FTA to play in helping the states address the problems they

Industry 4.0 and autonomous transportation: the impacts on supply chain management

Industry 4.0 and autonomous transportation: the impacts on supply chain management

The application of Information and communication technologies (ICT) towards efficiency of modern manufacturing operations, supply chains and distribution networks are inevitable. Specifically, within the Industry 4.0 context, there are some challenges regarding the linkages between IoT and the logistic networks, for instance the key success factors of supply chain such as supply chain visibility and delivery of the goods at right quantity, right time, right place, right condition and accurate cost [7]. Due to the variable needs and demand of customers for highly personalized products, transformation of control and planning practices are needed. In this regard, the technology-driven “Smart Logistics” can be used to offer smart products and smart services to increase flexibility, respond to market changes, make closer ties between company and customers as well as production optimization and reduction of manufacturing and warehousing costs [8]. Likewise, and in a broader level, logistics 4.0 is combination of application of innovations within logistics activities provided by “Cyber Physical Systems” (CPS). This paradigm is a result of enhanced use of internet enabling an effective communication and information sharing between humans and machines referring to advanced digitalisation as well. The key technological applications within Logistics 4.0 are to address resource planning, warehouse management systems, transportation management systems, intelligent transportation systems and information security [8].

Transportation evacuation strategies based on VANET disaster management system

Transportation evacuation strategies based on VANET disaster management system

A greater penetration of ICT in ITS will play a critical role in disaster response and transportation management in order to minimize loss of human life, economic cost and disruption. In this paper, we used a tool to examine the effectiveness of an evacuation strategy entitled Speed Strategy. The tool assumes dynamic decision support evacuation. Because we apply the dynamic disaster system and evacuation strategies, significant improvements are achieved. The system was evaluated using the micro-simulation model known as S-Paramics ITS system to measure the effectiveness of the system in terms of improved disaster evacuation characteristics. In addition, the driver response is considered and evaluated. The results show big improvement while applying the SS in saving the human lives.. The results also show an improvement has been achieved in terms of the number of saved vehicles. The future work will focus on further analysis and validation of other disaster evacuation strategies.
