PROSPECTS OF INTERNATIONAL FREIGHT TRANSPORT IN THE EAST-WEST DIRECTION

Paweł DROŹDZIEL/ Bibiána BUKOVÁ/ Eva BRUMERČÍKOVÁ

The article deals with the assets of building broad-gauge lines in Europe. The delivery time for international transport of goods affects international business in terms of the capital put into goods and subsequently affects its turnover rate. The current disproportion of different line gauges in Europe causes significant problems in the transport of goods especially in commodity streams in the East - West direction. Based on previous research of commodity streams in international trade and a co(..)

THE OPTIMIZATION APPROACH OF POSTAL TRANSPORTATION NETWORK BASED ON UNCAPACITATED FIXED CHARGE LOCATION MODEL IN CONDITIONS OF SLOVAK REPUBLIC

Radovan MADLEŇÁK/ Jozef ŠTEFUNKO

The article deals with the possibilities of optimizing the postal transportation network with respect to planned road infrastructure. The research adopted in this article uses allocation models within graph theory to obtain results for addressed optimization problem. The article presents and compares two types of these models – p-median and uncapacitated fixed charge facility location model. The latter is subsequently applied on the postal network to determine the optimal location of postal faci(..)

ACTIVE MEASURES AS PART OF DIALOGUE MARKETING PROMOTING THE USE OF PUBLIC TRANSPORT IN RURAL AREAS

Roman KLEMENTSCHITZ/ Oliver ROIDER

The SmartMove project is working to advance innovative marketing and mobility solutions in eight rural and peripheral European regions and is co-funded by the Intelligent Energy Europe Programme of the European Union. Through tailor-made strategies, it aims to provide information and encourage people to use public transport in their region. Sparsely populated rural areas in Europe are facing tremendous social changes due to shrinking and ageing populations. Because of the scattered settlement st(..)

MODELLING CHALLENGES TO FORECAST URBAN GOODS DEMAND FOR RAIL

Antonio COMI/ Agostino NUZZOLO

This paper explores the new research challenges for forecasting urban goods demand by rail. In fact, the growing interest to find urban logistics solutions for improving city sustainability and liveability, mainly due to the reduction of urban road accessibility and environmental constraints, has pushed to explore solutions alternative to the road. Multimodal urban logistics, based on the use of railway, seem an interesting alternative solution, but it remained mainly at conceptual level. Few st(..)

AN EXPERIMENTAL RESEARCH ON THE WEAR OF TRUCK TIRE

Rosen IVANOV/ Krasimir GEORGIEV/ Georgi KADIKYANOV/ Gergana STANEVA

Summary. An experimental device and methodology for tire wear investigation are presented. An indirect method for wear evaluating is used. The experimental results in cases of straight motion with and without side slip are obtained. The distribution of wearing on tread pattern wide is evaluated in different running conditions.

BIODEGRADABLE LUBRICANT FOR RAILWAY TRANSPORT

Mikhail BOIKO/ Konstantin LEBEDINSKY

Boron-containing lubricant for rail-curve lubrication is developed. Its effectiveness was proved by series of experiments carried out on different types of friction machines. The mechanism of antiscoring effect of boron-containing additives was analyzed in terms of physical adsorption.

ANALYSIS OF PERIODICAL TECHNICAL INSPECTION SYSTEMS IN AUTOMOTIVE TRANSPORT. THE EXPERIENCES OF POLAND AND RUSSIA

Jan FILIPCZYK/ Irina MAKAROVA/ Eduard BELYAEV

The increasing number of road accidents nowadays seems to by a global problem. Apart from the obvious causes of accidents, such as violation of road traffic rules by drivers and pedestrians, the drunk driving, poor quality of road infrastructure, the technical faults of vehicles should also be take into account. Reasons of technical failures can be the failure of parts, components and assemblies caused by aging, poor quality or non-observance of technological norms when they are installed. It is(..)

MODELLING THE IMPLEMENTATION OF A BAGGAGE TRANSPORT SYSTEM IN NEWCASTLE UPON TYNE FOR PASSENGERS USING MIXED-MODE TRAVEL

Daniel Connor REECE/ Marin MARINOV

This paper models a proposed system that has the potential to transport baggage. It makes use of a modal choice model to examine how effective the system would be if implemented. The introduction of a baggage collection system would increase the number of passengers using public transport which would be good for the environment. The specific location of the study was Tyne and Wear and a journey from North Shields to Newcastle International Airport was chosen for the analysis. With the introducti(..)
