Estimation of network level benefits of reliability improvements in intermodal freight transport

Rong Zhang, Wenliang Jian, Lóránt Tavasszy
2018 Research in Transportation Economics  
We propose an approach that estimates the change in transport time reliability of an intermodal transport chain based on the changes for links of that chain.  ...  For intermodal transport, shipments follow a chain with more than one mode. Generally, this requires aggregation of travel time distributions that are not additive.  ...  We also thank three anonymous reviewers for insightful comments and suggestions that have improved the paper. Any remaining errors are our own.  ...
