Final Report - LOGBASED (Logistics-based design)

Project ID: 1708
Funded under: FP6-SUSTDEV

Abstract

This is the final report of the LOGBASED project. Funded under the European Community's Sixth Framework Programme, LOGBASED aimed to develop more efficient roll on - roll off (RO-RO) ferries as part of developing and operating more effective intermodal transport value chains. The project aimed to help develop RO-RO vessels enabling motorways of the sea to become more competitive towards their road / rail equivalents.

The project worked towards identifying the principal requirements and variables influencing the development of a viable intermodal transport business; capturing the principal ship design, mapping the commercial and technical aspects in a logistics-based design methodology and developing a supporting software tool to facilitate its application; and applying the methodologies for selected business cases (intermodal transport systems) in order to verify the approach through the design of more efficient RO-RO vessels.
