Congestion Reduction Through Efficient Empty Container Movement Under Stochastic Demand

Research Product Type
Research Report
n this work, the authors developed a scheduling assignment for loaded and empty containers that builds on earlier models but incorporates stochastic (random) future demand. This report shows that the truck miles needed to satisfy the demand at all locations is reduced by about 4-7% when considering future stochastic demand as opposed to only considering today’s demand.

Developing Markets for Zero-Emission Vehicles (ZEVs) in Goods Movement

  • Principal Investigator Genevieve Giuliano, Ph.D.
  • University of Southern California
This project examines the potential for zero-emission and near-zero emission truck technologies from both economic and environmental perspectives, focusing on their use in short-haul drayage service.

Developing Markets for Zero-Emission Vehicles in Short-Haul Goods Movement

  • Principal Investigator Genevieve Giuliano, Ph.D.
  • University of Southern California
This report evaluates the market status and potential freight market penetration of zero emission vehicles (ZEVs) and near-ZEVs in the medium and heavy duty class within the California market. It focuses on intra-urban rather than long-haul deployment scenarios.
