Intermodal and Urban Transport Logistics

The course Intermodal and Urban Transport Logistics teaches the basics of transport logistics systems. After the introduction to the basics of transport logistics, means and carriers of transport are introduced and their performance profiles, transshipment points and underlying business systems are discussed. Building on this, complex topics focusing on sustainability and digitalization are discussed, such as information and communication systems in transport, new fulfillment concepts and electromobility. Furthermore, contents on security and cooperation in international transport chains and transport networks in trade will be dealt with in depth. The main focus of the course is to impart basic knowledge and problem-solving skills for transport logistics issues. The course will be concluded with a written exam.

The contents of the course Intermodal and Urban Transport Logistics are taught in 6 lecture blocks, which are held alternately by Prof. Dr.-Ing. Frank Straube and Prof. Dr. Sebastian Jürgens, supported by scientific staff of the Chair of Logistics.

The communication and provision of the documents is done via the corresponding ISIS course - the course name as well as the enrollment key will be announced in the information meeting of the Chair of Logistics.

Notice! To complete the module, the seminar Digital Networks in Transport Logistics must also be taken. In the seminar, building on the acquired basic knowledge, in-depth case studies are worked on current topics of transport logistics, such as port and airport logistics, rail transport as well as urban transport, combined transport and the influence of the advancing digitalization.
