The research focuses on the use of real time traffic data for freight transport in the Amsterdam Metropolitan region. The project narrows to the application of distribution of groceries to shops, convenience stores and consumers.
The project relates the available handling capacity to the actual position and expected time of arrival of trucks in the delivery location. Furthermore, based on this data combined with real time traffic data, uniform rerouting and buffering instructions are generated which can be communicated through on board computer systems to the truck drivers. The effectivity will be assessed for the logistics sector in general or upscaling with other modalities.
