Freight villages: A literature review from the sustainability and societal equity perspective

Baydar, A. Mete
Süral, Haldun
The purpose of this study is to present a state-of-the-art literature review on Freight Villages from the sustainability and equity perspective, and discuss their impacts and place in the supply chain and logistics networks while focusing on the core concepts of freight transportation. With an understanding of the structure of freight villages, it is clear that they have potential for a number of merits with the increase in freight transportation activities. However, our review shows that current literature does not present satisfying evidence that these villages fulfill their purpose in terms of sustainability and social equity.


Location–routing and synchronization problems in city logistics
Farham, Mohammad Saleh; Süral, Haldun; Department of Industrial Engineering (2020)
City logistics aims to improve urban freight transportation by considering the costs and benefits of public and private sectors, consolidating segmented freight shipments, and integrating the individual actors in a collaborative environment. This thesis studies network design problems in city logistics systems to address managerial challenges in urban freight transportation. We consider two network design schemes, namely the one and the two-echelon distribution networks, to formulate strategic and tactical ...
Analysis of public use bicycle systems from a product-service system perspective
Keskin, Duygu; Börekçi, Naz Ayşe Güzide Z.; Department of Industrial Design (2006)
Recent studies on sustainability indicate that the concept of the Product-Service System (PSS) is a promising approach to dematerialise the economy and reduce the environmental impacts of industrial activity. Considering the urban scale, mobility is one of the challenges that should be addressed and improved for a better quality of life for residents and lower pollution levels for the environment. In this respect, this study aims at analysing Public Use Bicycle (PUB) systems from a PSS perspective. Six PUB ...
Backcalculation of pavement layer properties using artificial neural network based gravitational search algorithm /
Öcal, Arda; Pekcan, Onur; Department of Civil Engineering (2014)
Transportation agencies need to make accurate decisions about maintenance strategies to provide sustainability of pavements. Non-destructive pavement evaluation means play a crucial role when making such assessments. A commonly used method is to use Falling Weight Deflectometer (FWD) device which measures the surface deflections under imposed loadings. Determination of layer properties through the use of FWD deflections is known as pavement layer backcalculation. This process requires the use of mathematica...
Chance constrained schedule design for heterogeneous fleet in liner shipping service
Shadmand, Aysan; Gürel, Sinan; Department of Industrial Engineering (2015)
This study deals with designing a schedule for a heterogeneous fleet of liner shipping service by considering uncertainties. Shipping industry encounters with different kinds of uncertainties. Uncertainties of waiting times of the ships and handling times of the cargos might affect the actual departure times of the ships. In this study, service level is represented as the probability of on-time departure of a ship. Assuming that handling and waiting times are normally distributed, the problem is formulated ...
Examining the maps of air transport network characteristics
Kılıç Depren, Serpil; Gökalp Yavuz, Fulya (2018-11-05)
Understanding the role of air transportation structure increases the economic and social assets in local and global scale. Identifying that role is required for an effective air transportation management, as well. Different methods are used to visualize, analyze network structures and to better understand complex network features of the air transportation. This study presents social network analysis as a method to extract information about the network through a pattern of individuals and communities. In a g...
