Innovation in European Freight Transportation: Basics, by Eva Savelsberg

By Eva Savelsberg

Serious difficulties and hazards may be saw in ecu freight transportation improvement. even if, the delivery and logistics region indicates an absence of culture in employing systematic innovation administration to beat those difficulties. for this reason, this quantity places ahead a selected and complete Systemic Migration-Oriented Innovation administration strategy. in the scope of this learn, seven case reviews of ecu freight shipping thoughts were performed utilizing this system. they give a extensive, entire and updated view relating various vendors, levels of automation, and corridors throughout Europe. those case experiences reveal how implementations of suggestions will be played successfully.

Advances in the Mechanics of Plates and Shells: The Avinoam Libai Anniversary Volume

The optimum keep watch over of versatile constructions is an energetic sector of study. the most physique of labor during this zone is worried with the keep an eye on of time-dependent displacements and stresses, and assumes linear elastic stipulations, particularly linear elastic fabric habit and small defor- tion. See, e. g. , [1]–[3], the collections of papers [4, 5], and references therein.

According to Petry (2005b) acceptance is the absorption of technological innovation, and the subsequent continuous and smooth use of this innovation as tangible application. Two biases should be avoided here. The pro-innovation bias is characterised by strong orientation towards the requirements of the producer, or the supply side of the innovation. The individual-blame bias shifts the blame of failure on the user, or the demand side of the innovation. Therefore Petry recommends realising innovation processes which are acceptance-oriented from the start.

4. Introducing the Three Fields of Action Chapter 2 started out with the demand that new technologies and logistic services have to be developed and implemented. Technology development, however, has to consider social and economic attractiveness. Specifically the technological attractiveness would need to be mainly realised through such social and economic concerns. In this chapter, innovation-related recommendations have been suggested which take care of these issues of social, economic and technological attractiveness.

Full-train R1 – Improve the profitability of single-wagon business. R7 – Cooperation between road and rail actors. R10 – Attractiveness to upcoming markets. R11 – Consideration of the criteria: quality, time, cost, being agile, high ability to respond to changes and lean processes Corridors R12 – Optimum use of the strengths of each carrier and technology. Education/ R13 – Get innovations in freight transport closer to users, organisations and training society. 30 2 Significant Aspects of the Land-Based Long-Distance Freight Market The requirements show that actions have to be taken to raise the attractiveness of freight transportation in a social/environmental, economic and technological sense.
