  • Logistics Strategy Research for Efficient Operation of Airports and Ports

    • Abstract: The competition between airports and ports is intensifying, and countries are actively implementing and promoting policies to strengthen their competitiveness and role of a logistics hubs. Airports and ports play a key role in national competitiveness because they serve as logistics platforms for air transport and sea transport. Major countries are improving airports and ports as part of the competitive struggle and actively pursuing policies to gain a competitive advantage as logistics platforms and hubs. In order to improve efficiency, it is essential to develop a logistics strategy. In this study, we analyse the changes in transport volume in major airports and ports in South Korea, China, and Hong Kong, and assess South Korea’s logistics strategy and competitiveness. We present and discuss studies on the importance of logistics strategies for efficient operation of airports and ports.

  • Algorithm for Creating Optimized Green Corridor for Emergency Vehicles
           with Minimum Possible Disturbance in Traffic

    • Abstract: Green corridor is a dynamic real-time lane created in order to increase the speed at which an emergency vehicle can travel in traffic. Its purpose is to reduce the travel time of emergency vehicles. The paper submitted examines ways to optimize the travel time for emergency vehicles and for other drivers on the roads. The paper takes into account the fact that all vehicles accelerate and decelerate at different speeds and the fact that there might be several traffic guided lights and non-guided lights on the roads. There are other factors considered, such as the speed and safety, in order to create a sustainable solution that can be implemented at scale. SUMO simulation libraries are used to create an environment as close to reality as possible. The trade-off between the number of variables selected and the approximation of a real situation has been carefully selected so that the solution is also feasible in real-life situations.

  • Nautical Tourism – Case Study in the Republic of Croatia

    • Abstract: In order to obtain a comprehensive insight into nautical tourism, we analysed the arrivals and overnight stays in nautical charters, as well as the number of registered vessels according to length, the number of ports and marinas and the number of berths. An analysis of the correlation between the observed nautical tourism variables was also conducted. The number of arrivals and overnight stays in nautical charters has been showing an upward trend. The number of yachts or, respectively, boats that are over 12 m in length has also been increasing. The number of marinas varies in the observed period, while nautical tourism ports display a constant growth. The number of berths has also been growing in comparison with the years before, with the exception of 2013 and 2017. The correlation analysis established that the growth in the number of marinas has followed the growth in the number of vessels with lengths between 12 and 15 metres, between 15 and 20 metres and those with lengths exceeding 20 metres. The number of nautical tourism ports and the number of berths have a positive and statistically significant impact on the increase in the number of vessels that are longer than 12 metres.

  • An Approach to Developing Mathematical Software of On-Board Helicopter
           Flight Simulator Decision Support System

    • Abstract: The work explores methods and develops aids to improve a pilot flight training level using Full Flight Simulators. It examines their didactic advantages over real helicopters by implementing on-board intelligent decision support systems (IDSS). These simulation programs monitor actions of learner, find the best ways to correct errors and generate appropriate instructions. The training is carried out by reference point methods while the helicopter flight dynamics model simulates a flight and helps an instructor in parallel. Sufficiently simple and accurate model of helicopter flight dynamics was selected and tested to assess the proposed methods and aids. Our analysis introduces a functional structure of IDSS as an adaptive control system with a reference model. We further conducted a study on developing models, methods and means of automatic analysis, forecasting, optimization and correction of actions. Combining single-criteria conditional and vector optimization methods, we found out optimal flight parameters. The research findings revealed that the chosen optimization method requires too many system resources for the optimal solution to be found in a short time. The study thereby comes up with applying ANNs to solve this problem.

  • Improvement of Steerability and Driving Safety of an Electric
           Three-Wheeled Vehicle by a Design Modification of its Steering Mechanism

    • Abstract: Three-wheeled vehicles are transport means which generally combine properties of two-wheeled vehicles (principal motorcycles) and four-wheeled vehicles (standards cars). Three-wheeled vehicles have been designed and manufactured as units which are made up of one front wheel and two rear wheels, powered by an electric drive-train, and referred to in some countries under a non-English term as E-3kolka. These vehicles also comprise a special steering mechanism which improves their overturning stability when driving around curves. However, several tests have revealed certain deficiencies of the steering mechanism, where the main issue included unreliable self-restraining effect of steering wheel straightening after driving around a curve. This may even lead to unacceptable properties of the vehicle. Therefore, the authors of this paper suggest particular technical solutions to eliminate or completely avoid the described negative effects during driving. Proposed designs are mutually compared and a final decision is presented.

  • Solving XpressBees Logistics Problem by Using Exact and Heuristic Method

    • Abstract: Finding the shortest travelling distance based on various situations might assist travelers in making a better selection of route decisions. The main goal of this paper is to solve the routing problem for the company’s fleet vehicle (XpressBees) in order to find the best route under various constraints such as Signalized Intersections, Vehicle Capacity, Customer Demands, and Time Windows in order to reduce transportation costs by using real data. TSP and VRP and their variants are common problems for logistics companies that handle commodities transportation. In addition, for signalised intersections, the Highway Capacity Manual is used, and for truck optimization, the Product Loading Algorithm is used. As a result, there are various algorithms that provide a solution to this problem, such as the Branch and Bound Penalty Method, Dijikstra’s Algorithm, Dynamic Programming, Clarke and Wright savings algorithm and Holmes and Parker Heuristic. These algorithm returns the best option, which is the cheapest route.

  • Automatic Detection of Track Length Defects

    • Abstract: Ensuring the safety of railway transport operation requires constant monitoring of the technical condition of individual elements of railway infrastructure. The necessary activities that contribute to maintaining good operational condition of the railway transport line also include the diagnostics of track length. Diagnostics of railway tracks is most often performed by means of regular visual inspection (in the conditions of the infrastructure manager – ŽSR). The objective of the article is to provide information on the application of a new approach to diagnostics of the technical condition of railway infrastructure. The new approach to defect identification on railway infrastructure uses non-invasive diagnostic methods based on the latest knowledge in the field of information and communication technologies. These facts resulted in investigating the possibilities of automatic detection of the technical condition of the track length using neural networks. The article is part of the following scientific research task: ‘Research into new knowledge and observational experience of a new generation of diagnostic systems in industrial production and transport industry – research into the physical nature of an automated track length video inspection system’, supported by the Ministry of Education, Science, Research and Sport of the Slovak Republic.

  • Determinant Port-related Factors Affecting the Flow of Shipping Trade and
           Logistics in Nigerian Seaports

    • Abstract: The need to eliminate bottlenecks to port operations in Nigeria was a fundamental goal of the port privatization about 2 decades ago. Current trends in ports management; however, suggest existence of numerous inefficiency challenges reflected in long ship turnaround time, increasing trend of cargo dwell time, high cargo pilferage risk rate, poor condition of port infrastructure and superstructure, multiple charges and government agencies, cumbersome cargo clearance & examination procedures, port congestion related delays particularly in Apapa and Onne ports, etc. The study identifies the decisive port-related factors constraining the flow of shipping trade in Nigerian ports using a survey to obtain data on the influence of the identified factors on the flow of shipping trade in Nigerian ports. The Principal Component Analysis (PCA) was used to analyze the data obtained. The results indicate that high cargo pilferage risk profile, long ship turnaround time and increasing trend of cargo dwell time constitute the significant port-related factors constraining the flow of shipping in Nigerian ports. It can be concluded that terminal operators should prioritize solutions to the problems of high cargo pilferage risk profile, long ship turnaround time and increasing cargo dwell time, which constitute the major constraints to the flow of shipping trade.

  • Effect Size of Logistics: Evidence from Selected Countries

    • Abstract: Efficiency of cross-border goods' movement and resource use is key for countries' economic growth. This study aimed to estimate the effect size of transportation infrastructure and logistics performance on selected countries' development, based on the infrastructure of services approach. A partial least square (PLS) and structural equation modeling (SEM) analysis for 74 countries for 2012–2018 revealed that transportation infrastructure and logistics performance were statistically significant (at the 1% level) for economic development, despite small and medium effect size. Transportation had a significantly positive and large effect on logistics performance (at the 1% level). Mediation analysis results also showed evidence of the significantly large effect size (at the 1% level) of logistics performance. The study concludes that logistics performance is a strong contributor—directly and indirectly—in the development of countries where transportation alone may not be enough. Hence, countries should prioritize logistics development strategies to harness global production networks, improve policies and practices, and enhance their standards of living.

  • Evaluation and Selection of Nigerian Third-Party Logistics Service
           Providers Using Multi-Criteria Decision Models

    • Abstract: This paper is focused on solving the evaluation and selection of 3PL’s by applying multi-criteria decision-making methods. Nigerian Breweries, Nigerian Bottling Company (NBC), AG Leventis, Kobo logistics, and Flour Mills of Nigeria (FMN) were understudied. The main criteria on which evaluation is based were established: Cost, Service level, Financial Capability, Reputation and Long-term relationship. A combination of two quantitative models was adopted in the study. Relevant data were collected through an oral interview with managers and key decision-makers at the companies. SWARA was first applied to the collated data to determine the relative weights of the criteria. Afterwards, the TOPSIS was applied to the weights developed using SWARA and on the performance of the selected service providers. After the analysis, the best service provider was identified as supplier 2 while the worst was supplier 5.

  • Smart City Decision Making System Based on Event-driven Platform

    • Abstract: With the occurrence of rapid urbanization and intensive growth of different modes of transport, we face issues such as resource management, energy demand and lack of capacity due to overcrowding. To help with these issues we leverage technology and the Internet of Things (IoT) to develop smart cities. In this paper, we propose an innovative approach to development of new smart city event-driven platform with which we want to simplify data input, data transformation, and decision making processes. The platform uses events, labels and reliability factor to make decisions and trigger actions. This paper begins with an overview of the smart city framework and we review the characteristics of event-driven models. The event-driven platform is presented and discussed. The paper closes with our findings, suggestions, open issues, and future research possibilities.

  • Influence of Cruise Control Use on Vehicle´s Consumption

    • Abstract: Most vehicles used in road transport are powered by internal combustion engines. Depending on the nature of their operation, each vehicle releases a certain amount of emissions into the air. Among other things, emissions include carbon dioxide, which significantly contributes to the greenhouse effect. The quantity of CO2 produced is closely related to fuel consumption. The article presents the results of test drives which were performed on a passenger car meeting emission standard Euro 4. The aim of the study was to verify the impact of the use of cruise control on fuel consumption of the vehicle. The measurement was performed on the basis of test drives carried out on a highway section. The consumption was determined based on the data obtained from a diagnostic device, which was connected to the vehicle via OBD. The test drives were repeated several times in order to get as close as possible to the actual operation of the vehicle.

  • Can B2B Implementation Enhance Competitiveness of Logistic Companies in
           Coronavirus Economic Recession'

    • Abstract: The paper presents recommendations determined to assist logistic companies in conceiving an efficient B2B implementation policy with the aim of enhancing market competitiveness, especially in time of intensified market competition. The research is based on an analysis of the situation in B2B implementation during the period of the 2008-2009 economic crisis, where – on a sample of 229 logistic companies based in the Czech Republic – it ascertains whether the extent of B2B implementation changed over this period. This is done in a short-time (2006 vs. 2010) as well as long-time (extended with 2014 vs. 2018) horizon. Although some conclusions are in contradiction with other authors, they state a high extent of B2B implementation, which even further increased over the above economic crisis and even continued in a longer time horizon following the crisis. The conclusions are then analogically transferred to the present 2020 “coronavirus economic recession” and practicable recommendations are formulated. Being made on a high level of reliability, the recommendations have a potential to serve as an efficient tool ensuring economic “survival” of logistic companies, which is – especially in the field of logistics due to the implemented anti-COVID measures creating new trade barriers – very actual.

  • Assessing the Energy Intensity and Greenhouse Gas Emissions of the Traffic
           Services in a Selected Region

    • Abstract: The consumption of internal combustion vehicles and the resulting emissions associated with their operation have been at the forefront in the development of the automotive industry in recent years. This development is supported and required by a number of public administration organizations. This research deals with the monitoring of selected parameters for different types of means of transport, while the unifying element is consumption and emissions per passenger. The aim of the research is to determine the optimal vehicle for passenger transport for selected transport between two specific cities in Slovakia, Europe. The research used methods of analysis of energy intensity and emissions of individual transport units, while fuel consumption in a particular transport relationship is a decisive evaluation factor, which includes the calculation of experimental measurements in a real traffic situation. The various data and diagrams provide relevant data on the fuel consumption values achieved by the experiment converted to fuel consumption. The research is given as an example, and its principle can be applied in other specific localities. it can be applied to others, they may also apply to other transport routes.
