Title
Investigating into the challenges of European inland ports : a multifaceted approach
Author
Abstract
Despite their outstanding importance, challenges of inland ports are hardly focused upon in research. Therefore, many major challenges that European inland ports face are neither systematically identified nor addressed. In times of increasing integration of transport chains and modes, inland ports can serve as pivotal enablers in their natural role as intermodal logistics nodes. Hence, addressing the challenges of inland ports supports the efficiency and resilience of entire transport corridors and even logistics networks. With the findings of this research article, the major challenges of European inland ports are identified, systematically collected, empirically validated through semi-structured interviews, and validated with supporting geospatial analyses. On the basis of the findings of this research article, subsequent research can be motivated, initiated, and perpetuated, respectively.
