Publication year 2017 Abstract This paper addresses the development of a new module for multimodal transport chains for modelling container transport within the Dutch strategic freight transport model BasGoed. The existing BasGoed model simulates the separate transport legs in multimodal transport chains individually. In reality a significant volume of transport is part of multimodal transport chains, in particular for port-related containerised transport. Decision-making about transport modes takes place at the level of transport chains between the final origin and destination. Our objective was to specify a corridor choice model for container transport that addresses multimodal transport chains and enables an analysis of the impacts of new multimodal terminals within a strategic freight transport model. Since no directly observed PC data are available, a synthetic dataset was constructed with container flows between locations of production and consumption, using uni-modal observed transport data. Main assumption in this data processing is that each container transported by rail or barge requires a road leg at the side of destination and/or origin, to complete the multimodal transport chain.
