Title: Challenges and Future Research Needs towards International Freight Transport Modelling
Abstract: The advanced internationalisation of markets and production processes continuously adds to the complexity of supply chains. At the same time improving the sustainability of the related international freight transport processes and optimising their efficiency is becoming a topic of central relevance. International freight transport models are an important tool to simulate impacts of measures taken to achieve such improvements of transport processes. Yet, the requirements towards international freight transport models are complex: they need to include various modes of transport, they need to cover different industries and their dynamics, they need to consider seasonality of supply and demand of goods, demographic parameters, economic developments, technological developments including their impact on production processes and structures, and many other aspects. Furthermore, international freight transport models need to include freight flows within countries as well as freight flows between the considered countries. This paper discusses the challenges which need to be confronted when developing international freight transport models which are able to correspond to the described complexity of international freight transport. Furthermore, it maps out the most important research gaps which need to be addressed by international freight transport modelling research in order to ensure that the challenges identified are captured within the models developed to improve international freight transport.2

Title: A Holistic Approach to Measure Quality of Service in Freight Transport Networks
Abstract: This paper presents a holistic approach to measure quality of service in freight transport chains from shippers' point of view. The goal is to evaluate holistically intermodal and intramodal freight transport in order to get a harmonized performance of the quality, and to compare different elements of the transport chain with different characteristics. Moreover it aims to be used as a support for decision making in investment allocations and transport policy.2

Title: Capacity for Freight in Urban Railway Networks—An Analytical Model for Capacity Consumption of Freight Trains in Urban Networks
Abstract: As freight distribution is a growing challenge for metropolitan regions, there are calls to actively reintegrate rail freight into urban logistics. The use of railways in urban transport chains helps mitigating negative externalities such as noise, congestion or pollution. Additional strengths of rail transport are (i) the use of road-independent infrastructure, providing a reliable secondary mean of transport, and (ii) the high energy efficiency, due to the system's characteristics. Despite the advantages of railways, rail freight in urban areas is marginal. One of the reasons might be the lack of suitable train paths due to diverging train characteristics between passenger and freight trains. This paper focuses on the operation of freight railways in densely used mixed traffic networks against the background of network capacity. It determines whether currently unused capacity can be made available to freight by harmonizing train paths and network utilisation maximized by reducing discrepancies between passenger and freight transport. Since passenger transport is the predominant network user, freight operators need to adapt to its characteristics. The study provides an analytical model to determine the effects of changing train characteristics on capacity consumption. With an exemplary timetable study, the findings from the model are compared to the real railway network. The capacity consumption of freight trains can be decreased, most significantly through an increase of acceleration—by increasing traction or decreasing train weight. In contrast, improving train brakes have limited impact. A change of paradigm of how to operate freight trains seems to be necessary. However, increased operational costs for freight operators needs to be weighed against lower capacity consumption to the infrastructure manager's profit, such as improved network reliability and additional train paths. The paper concludes with measures to reduce capacity consumption and gives an outlook on the context of urban freight transport, particularly at the road-rail interface.2

Title: An event-based model for optimizing shunting yard operations
Abstract: Shunting is an important component of Single Wagon Load railway operations. It consists of splitting incoming freight train wagons and forming new outgoing trains, by reassembling the wagons from different incoming trains. The efficiency of shunting operations has a major impact on the performance of rail freight services. This paper proposes an event-based model for sorting trains for shunting at a hump shunting yard, which is capable of handling real time changes in the system. In this model, various events are designed for managing changes in the system over time. At each time step, the optimal sequence of trains for shunting is determined to maximize the throughput of the shunting yard. The model was tested on a benchmark study and showed to be an improvement over the previous solutions as well as solutions based on the first-in-first-out (FIFO) strategy.2

Title: Single Wagonload Production Schemes Improvements Using GüterSim (Agent-based Simulation Tool)
Abstract: Single Wagonload (SWL) is still a major component of the Swiss freight transportation system. To hold the market share of the SWL system a reduction of production costs and an increasing quality is needed. To evaluate alternative production schemes and the effects of technological innovations a simulation tool is necessary. Since there are no suitable tools available which cover all needs for a SWL simulation, the IVT developed a new agent-based tool called GüterSim on the basis of the existing software MATSim. GüterSim models the routing of the freight wagons, as agents, according to the routes in the real SWL network and the production schemes. It is a scalable model with two network levels and an integrated approach. This paper presents the following achievements: Modeling existing timetables and routing of freight trains; opportunity for improvements of train routings and schedules to optimize the existing productions scheme; integrating the capacity restrictions of the infrastructure to check the realizability of the improvements; automatic timetable generation on the existing network; and automatic generation of new production systems. A case study is presented to prove model's application. The work is based on real data from the SWL Swiss network which includes infrastructure data, schedules, rolling stock and locomotive data. Therefore the conclusions are based on real freight demand within the Swiss freight network. GüterSim is proved as a tool to improve SWL production schemes and scalable to other freight networks with fixed schedules.2

Title: Operation of freight railways in densely used mixed traffic Networks: An impact model to quantify changes in freight train characteristics
Abstract: As freight transport is a growing challenge for metropolitan areas, there are calls to reintegrate rail freight into urban logistics. The use of railway systems in urban logistics should help to mitigate negative externalities such as noise, congestion and air pollution. Additional strengths of rail transport are the use of road-independent infrastructure, providing a reliable secondary mean of transport, and the high energy efficiency. A number of different concepts have been outlined – mostly conceptually, focussing on the intermodal interface, i.e. urban road-rail terminals or urban cross docks.
This paper focuses on the rail side of urban logistics. It highlights the operational and technical challenges of operating freight trains in densely used railway networks with mixed traffic, against the background of railway network capacity consumption. The purpose of this study is to determine the effect of the characteristics of freight train on capacity consumption in mixed traffic railway networks. It devises an impact model to identify the drivers of capacity consumption and consequently to present effective ways to make better use of capacity in urban railway networks.
To maximise the number of train paths in a mixed-traffic network, the technical and operational discrepancies between passenger and freight rail transport need to be reduced. Since passenger transport is the predominant user of railway networks in metropolitan areas, freight trains are required to adapt to the characteristics of passenger trains. A variation of the factors speed, acceleration, deceleration and train length has shown that the relative capacity consumption of freight trains can be reduced. The impacts of the factors considered however differ significantly.2

Title: Strategies for Increasing the Energy Efficiency of Rail Freight Service in Switzerland
Abstract: This paper describes strategies for reducing energy use in Switzerland's rail freight sector. The research was motivated by the Swiss government's decision to phase out the use of nuclear energy. While rail freight is very energy efficient there remain significant possibilities for reducing energy use. This paper provides an overview of these opportunities by examining approaches for reducing energy use along the entire value chain of rail freight operation. For example, the energy efficiency of the infrastructure can be enhanced by making improvements to provide more train paths and enabling more freight to be transported over the same infrastructure. The rolling stock can be redesigned to reduce rolling resistance, optimize aerodynamic performance and reduce the weight of wagons. In the area of network design and scheduling it is possible to reduce deviations and unnecessary braking. Improved dispatching algorithms can be used to provide drivers with energy optimized trajectories and to help minimize the number of unplanned stops. All these measures will also improve the quality and reduce the costs of freight rail service, thus helping support additional modal shift from road to rail.2

Title: Optimization of SWL production schemes using an agent based simulation
Abstract: Single Wagonload (SWL) is still a major component in Swiss and European Logistic networks. Due to changing market requirements and a higher infrastructure load by passenger trains the SWL production schemes have to be optimised. The existing models do not cover both network levels, the production schemes and the physical infrastructure, which are required to optimise the SWL. So the IVT at ETH Zurich has developed an agent-based simulation for SWL based on MATSim. The first results of the simulation show, that this method is suitable for SWL simulation.2

Title: A Qualitative Model to Evaluate the Financial Effects of Innovations in the Rail Sector
Abstract: Up to the 2000s, European railway undertakings were integrated companies covering all elements of the railway system. As a result of the European railway packages these incumbent companies were subdivided into infrastructure managers and railway undertakings. The competition in the rail sector and the changing markets encouraged new companies with completely new business models to enter the railway market. New regulations generated entirely new roles and this is why nowadays a lot of companies with very different business models are active in the railway sector. These companies cover different parts of the value chain and have internal as well as external interfaces. Thus, a new model to evaluate funding models under these changing boundary conditions is essential. The authors developed a new role model to describe internal and external financial flows in the rail sector focusing on the financial issues of innovation. Initially all roles in the railway sector were defined and described. A role is the smallest not further divisible function in the railway system. Each role assigns to one field of the railway sector (infrastructure, service provider, operations and rolling stock) or to the external field called environment. A single company can cover multiple roles within the railway system and the former state railways with their wide product portfolio now cover numerous roles in the new railway system. The next step was to evaluate the relationships between the stakeholders within the system and to show the resulting financial flows within the railway system. The role model allows to illustrate the internal flows of a company (e.g. within integrated railway companies) as well as external flows between different undertakings. The model does not differentiate between the supply of rolling stock by internal divisions or by rolling stock leasing companies for example. As innovations usually tackle the economics of more than one role in the system, the model clearly allocates the qualitative economic effects of the innovations. The illustration of the financial flows allows to derive compensation models between the roles gaining profit from an innovation and the roles which lose profitability. The model also allows a rough estimation of the transaction effort for the compensation models. Finally the authors proofed the applicability of the model in three case studies. These case studies demonstrated that one of the mayor obstacles for innovation in the railway system are the missing direct financial flows between infrastructure and rolling stock. ,2

Title: Innovationen im alpenquerenden Güterverkehr: Schlussbericht, Bundesamt fuer Verkehr (BAV)
Abstract: Mit de m, 1994 vom Volk angenommenen Alpenschutzartikel und den damit verbundenen gesetzlichen Rahmenbedingungen wurde auf einen Zeithorizont von 2 Jahren nach Eröffnung des Gotthard - Basist unnels ein Ziel von maximal 650 000 alpenquerenden Lastwagenfahrten vorgegeben. N ach heutiger Einschätzung kann mit den bereits beschlossenen und umgesetzten Massnahmen dieses Ziel jedoch nicht mehr erreicht werden ( UVEK, 2013). Daher ist es erforderlich, weitere Massnahmen zu prüfen, um den alpenquerenden Schienengüterverkehr gegenübe r dem Strassentransport wettbewerbsfähiger zu gestalten. Eine Option hierzu stellen technische Innovationen im Schienengüterverkehr dar. Im vorliegenden Bericht werden daher alle, derzeit in einem nahezu anwendungsreifen Zustand befindlichen technischen In novationen auf ihre Anwendbarkeit und ihre Effizienzwirkungen im alpenquerenden Güterverkehr hin untersucht. Die Innovationen werden unterteilt in : ? Systeminnovationen , die komplett neue Systemlösungen für Transportketten darstellen und damit mehr al s eine n Bereich (Rollmaterial, Infrastruktur und Angebot) des Gesamtsystems Bahn verändern . ? Fahrzeuginnovation , die Verbesserungen im Bereich des Rollmaterials und seiner Komponenten umfassen ? Infrastrukturinnovationen , die Verbesserungen der festen Anlagen umfas sen und ? Prozessinnovationen , die bei bestehender Technologie die Abläufe im System Bahn optimieren.2

Title: Zukünftiges Potenzial des Schienengüterverkehrs im Raum Bregenz im Hinblick auf den Ausbau der Streckenabschnitte Lindau-Geltendorf und Lindau-Friedrichshafen-Ulm: Schlussbericht
Abstract: Derzeit verkehren auf der Eisenbahnstrecke von Bregenz bis Lindau zwischen ein und zwei Güterzüge pro Tag. Mit Fertigstellung der Neuen Eisenbahn Alpentransversale (NEAT) voraussichtlich im Jahr 2017 , stehen zusätzliche Kapazitäten im Alpenquerenden Schienengüterverkehr zur Verfügung. In Deutschland erfolgt darüber hinaus die Elektrifizierung der beiden Bahnstrecken Lindau – Geltendorf – München sowie Lindau – Friedrichshafen – Ulm, die nach ihrer Fertigstellung voraussichtlich bis 2025, nach ErÖffnung des Gotthard Basistunnels, eine Zubringerfunktion zur NEAT übernehmen kÖnnten. Vor diesem Hintergrund haben das Land Vorarlberg, die ÖBB Infrastruktur AG sowie das Bundesministerium für Verkehr, Innovation und Technologie (BMVIT) eine Studie mit dem Ziel vergeben, die Auswirkungen des Ausbaus der beiden deutschen Zulaufstrecken auf das Österreichische Eisenbahnnetz im Raum Bregenz zu untersuchen.2

Title: Verkehrsmodellierung im UVEK: Evaluierung der nationalen Güterverkehrsmodellierung
Abstract: Im Rahmen der nationalen Verkehrsmodellierung im UVEK (VM-UVEK) betreiben ARE, ASTRA und BAV neben dem Nationalen Personenverkehrsmodell (NPVM) auch ein disaggregiertes Modell zum Güterverkehr (NGVM). Methodische und technische Gründe schränken den Anwendungsbereich des NGVM ein, zudem fokussiert es auf den Binnenverkehr. Vor diesem Hintergrund wurde eine Evaluierung der nationalen Güterverkehrsmodellierung angestossen. Die Evaluierung wurde nach drei Schwerpunkten gegliedert: Analyse des Bedarfs an Fragestellungen zum Güterverkehr, Auslegeordnung zu Methoden und (vergleichbaren nationalen) Modellen inkl. des bestehenden Modells sowie Sichtung der Verfügbarkeit von (modellrelevanten) Daten zum Güterverkehr. Ziel war es, aus der Evaluierung Stossrichtungen und Strategien für die weitere Entwicklung der Nationalen Güterverkehrsmodellierung abzuleiten. Die Bedarfsanalyse hat gezeigt, dass es einen breiten, künftig gar steigenden Bedarf an strategisch modellierten Daten zum Güterverkehr gibt. Die damit verbundenen Fragestellungen lassen sich grob in solche mit eher aggregiertem Blickwinkel (nationale Ebene, zusammengefasste Marktsegmente) und solche mit stark disaggregiertem Blickwinkel (örtlich eingegrenzt, auf Teilsegmente fokussierend) unterscheiden. Die Betrachtung von Methoden und Modellen hat gezeigt, dass die Komplexität der Wirkungszusammenhänge im Güterverkehr die Möglichkeiten der Modellierung begrenzt – zumindest ist derzeit kein Modell in Sicht, welches gegenüber dem bestehenden, eher disaggregiert arbeitendem NGVM signifikante Vorteile aufweisen würde. Es gibt aber Methoden, welche mit aggregierten Ansätzen vereinfachend einige der übergeordneten Fragestellungen besser abzubilden vermögen als disaggregiert arbeitende Modelle. Die Datenlage lässt sich ähnlich zweiteilen: Für eher übergeordnete Blickwinkel und den dafür infrage kommenden Modellen liegen deutlich mehr Daten vor als für disaggregierte Betrachtungsweisen, wobei Daten mit Prognosecharakter generell nur eingeschränkt verfügbar sind. Die Einstellung der nationalen Güterverkehrsmodellierung wäre aus Sicht des Bedarfes kontraproduktiv; der Aufbau eines neuen disagregierten Modells bietet sich ebenfalls nicht an. Daher erscheint es empfehlenswert, im weiteren Umgang zu einer nationalen Güterverkehrsmodellierung eine Strategie zu verfolgen, die modular die aggregierten und disaggregierten Blickwinkel berücksichtigt und dabei das bestehende NGVM einbezieht. Etappenweise könnte mit dem Aufbau eines aggregiert arbeitenden Modells begonnen werden – abgestimmt auf spätere Querbeziehungen zum bestehenden Modell. Dieses ist dann für disaggregierte Betrachtungen zu optimieren. Begleitet werden sollte die Nationale Güterverkehrsmodellierung von einem Betriebskonzept und einer angemessenen Kommunikation zu den Möglichkeiten und Grenzen der Daten, Methoden und Modelle.2

Title: Improving the Forecast of Freight Transport Demand Using Machine Learning and Time Series Methods
Abstract: Previous research at ETH Zürich (Moll 2012b) already found that freight railway undertakings could increase their efficiency by far, by integrating demand predictions into their regular planning process. The shippers, as main sources of the demand data, often do not have their own forecasts, which have been done in an appropriate way, or are not willing to provide their forecast data to the railway undertakings. So the freight railway undertakings have to find other sources to enhance their own demand forecasts. The railway undertakings have a lot of detailed data from former transports such as the "Wagenverlaufsdatei" (wagon run data), which contains a dataset for each transported wagon containing its origin, its destination, the demand date, the transported type of goods, the shipper, the route and the type of wagon used for the transport. One promising approach is to exploit time series methods and machine learning algorithms to forecast the demand using this existing data. The project presented here would therefore contribute a novel new field of application for existing machine learning and time series methods. In other fields of transport demand forecast, for example in passenger demand forecast and in traffic flow forecasts on highways in Switzerland (a previous project completed by ZHAW) these methodological approaches have already shown good results. So in this project, which has just been started, ETH Zurich, Institute for Transport Planning and Systems and ZHAW Wädenswil, Institute of Applied Simulation, are testing a broad range of machine learning and time series methods for forecasting freight demand to enhance the efficiency of rail freight undertakings. This evaluation will include the identification of driver variables for freight demand depending on the type of goods, which are transported. The methods will then be further developed to include these driver variables and then the effect that the application of these methods could have on the efficiency of railway undertakings will be investigated. So this research will fill a gap in current knowledge as until now, only a small number of methods have been tested on limited data. This project would contribute to this field of knowledge by providing a thorough review and evaluation of a broad range of possible methods which could be applied to freight demand forecasting. The wagon demand data for each day of one year (2012) has already been obtained from SBB Infrastructure. As a proof of concept, a simple neural network and a ARMA(5,5) model have been used to forecast the demand for the last 60 days, using the rest of the year's data for training the methods. The results from these methods are presented here, but we expect to develop methods which are better suited to the problem and to obtain better results as the project, which is still in the very early stages, progresses. As we only have a few preliminary results so far, the main purpose of this paper is to present the project and the ideas behind it.

Title: Agent based simulation of a single Wagon-Load network
Abstract: This paper shows the first implementation step of an agent-based simulation of the single wagonload (SWL) network in Switzerland. SWL is still a major component of the Swiss freight transportation system. To hold the market share of the SWL system a reduction of production costs and an increase in quality is needed. To evaluate alternative production schemes and the effects of technological innovations a simulation tool is necessary. Since there are no suitable tools available which can cover all the need of a SWL simulation the IVT is developing (in cooperation with Senozon) a new agent-based tool called GüterSim, on basis of the existing software MATSim. Now that the first implementation step is finished, the first simulations can be run.2

Title: Behavior of Continuous Welded Rail Tracks in Tight Curves on Narrow Gauge Railways
Abstract: Continuously welded rail (CWR) represents the "state of the art" in railway track design. CWR increases ride comfort, reduces emissions, and reduces maintenance costs thereby improving economic sustainability for railway companies. Narrowgauge railways are generally located in areas with difficult topographic conditions and have extreme track geometry requirements. Switzerland's regulations for CWR on narrow gauge railways (2006) were developed by adapting theoretical research results from standard gauge tracks to meter gauge tracks. These regulations addressed the use of CWR in curves with a radius less than 100 m for the first time. They also take into consideration lateral track displacements within certain limits in determining lateral track stability. Since the regulations are based on estimations and assumptions, they can be characterized only as benchmarks and must be evaluated in field tests. The necessity for field test verification is even pointed out in the regulations. This paper presents results of a field test verification of lateral track displacement on CWR in curves of approximately 100 m for narrow gauge railways. The main finding is that the regulations developed on the basis of assumptions and theoretical estimates are generally correct although more research is needed.2

Title: Informationstechnologien in der zukünftigen Gütertransportwirtschaft
Abstract: Ausgehend vom dynamischen Wachstum der Transportströme steht die Schweiz als eines der wichtigsten Transitländer Europas vor grossen Herausforderungen. Ergänzend zum zeit- und kostenintensiven Ausbau der Infrastruktur müssen daher auch die weiteren Möglichkeiten zur Kapazitätsverbesserung und zur verbesserten Nutzung vorhandener Kapazitäten ausgeschöpft werden. In diesem Sinne wurden aktuell vorhandene Prinzipien der IT-Anwendungen im Güterverkehr auf den drei Nutzungsebenen Infrastrukturbewirtschaftung, Prozesskettenbetreiber und unternehmensintern hinsichtlich ihrer Wirkungen untersucht und bewertet. Darüber hinaus wurden erwartete Trends und Entwicklungen im IT- Sektor mit einbezogen. Die Wertung der IT-Funktionalitäten / Funktionen orientiert sich einerseits an den Nutzungsebenen sowie andererseits an den Strategien zur Verkehrsverlagerung, Verkehrsvermeidung und Verkehrslenkung/-steuerung.

Title: Level-of-service Based Evaluation of Freight Networks
Abstract: Level of service (LoS) is a gradual classification of the quality experienced by users of a passenger transport infrastructure. It classifies the quality by a scale of letters, normally classified from A for the maximum quality of service to F for the minimum. In road transportation it evaluates e.g. the performance and security of the traffic flow and their impacts in the drivers or passengers. LoS was first developed for the High Capacity Manual in 1965. This concept was originally applied on highways and roads but nowadays is also applied on urban areas, intersections, and roundabouts, thanks to the updates of more recent experience and improved data. In the last years a LoS concept has been applied to other sectors in the transportation field such as public transport and slow modes such as pedestrians and bicycles, so basically it has only been used for passenger transport. But untill now the LOS concept has never been transferred to freight transport, except from one application for intermodal terminals. Applying the LoS concept to freight transport will provide great benefits for freight haulers. This methodology can be used to identify bottlenecks in the transport chain, even if there exist very different elements in this transport chain. It can also allow to compare different transport chains, or add new concepts in the existing definitions of quality levels for networks such as the international single wagon network XRail. Governments could profit as well from this tool to get technical conclusions from a concrete corridor in terms of quality of service provided, and therefore decide if the corridor might need some sort of improvement according to a desired standard of quality. It also might help to compare the effect of different investments across modes or in different points of the network. The LoS for freight transport under development wants to be a tool that allows to evaluate holistically the real state of the freight corridors by analyzing them link by link despite the overall behavior. A tool that could provide useful information about freight transport quality to transport planners and shippers, and therefore help them in their decision making process. This LoS for freight transport takes into account the different transport means performing in the European corridors: rail, road, inland waterways and short sea shipping. It allows to compare their performance and evaluates them in a combined scale. It also considers which type of good is being transported and therefore adjusts its needs with the right LoS' scale. These properties allow to evaluate a full intermodal shipment of any type of good under a unified criteria but at the same time it regards the particular needs the different commodity groups have. Transport indicators will be used to evaluate the quality of the transport in absolute values, with independence of the transport mode used. Afterwards this values will be matched with the scale of needs of the commodity group of the good transported, so the real quality of the shipment will be stated. Possible indicators are: travel time, reliability, and risk of damage and loss, which recent studies show them as the most reliable to estimate the willingness to pay of the shippers. This methodology will be proved in a test case on European TEN-T corridors. This corridors are composed by the four transport modes which take part of the methodology and they are wide enough to supply a large amount of information about bottlenecks, country border issues and transport geography.2

Title: ViWaS – single wagonload freight traffic in Europe
Abstract: In several European countries the single wagonload networks are a major component of national and international logistics chains. Especially industrial sectors such as automotive, chemical and pharmaceutical industry as well as steel and scrap metals rely on the services of single wagonload transport. However, in most European countries single wagonload transport has faced decreasing demand, increasing market requirements and changing framework conditions. As a result railway companies have lost market share, mostly to competitors on the road. In a number of European countries single wagonload networks have been shut down completely. ViWaS (Viable Wagonload Production Schemes) is a research project funded by the European Commission within the 7th European Framework Programme. The ViWaS project consortium consist of consulting companies (HaCon, New Opera), academic institutes (ETH Zürich, TU Berlin) and industrial partners (SBB Cargo, Wascosa, SNCF Fret, Bentheimer Eisenbahn, Interporto Bologna, Eureka Navigation Solutions). The project's aim is to find solutions for the problems the single wagonload network faces today. Despite rising petrol prices and increasing road congestion, significant improvements in the quality and reliability are needed to make single wagonload transport more competitive. Therefore the ViWaS project aims to develop

• market driven business models and production systems to secure the critical mass needed for single wagonload operations.

• new ways for last mile infrastructure design and organisation to raise cost efficiency.

• adapted single wagonload technologies to improve flexibility, information flows and equipment utilisation.

• advanced single wagonload management procedures & ICT to raise quality, reliability and cost efficiency.

In order to increase transport volumes and use synergies in railway operations, intermodal transports are partly integrated into the single wagonload network. Under the brand name of Swiss-Split SBB Cargo delivers maritime containers to private sidings. Currently the containers are placed on flat wagons with a wooden deck (Rs, Res) allowing forklifts to drive onto the wagons to load and unload the containers. Those wagons are reaching the end of their life cycle and need to be replaced. Based on Wascosas flex freight system a deck will be developed for the use with standard intermodal flat wagons. A detailed process analysis is necessary to understand the needs of current Swiss-Split customers and the operator. A catalogue of technical requirements will then be provided to the project partners for the development of the forklift deck. A feasibility study will be conducted to determine the expected costs for the Swiss-Split 2 deck.

Abstract: Die SBB Cargo AG hat im Rahmen der Abgeltungsvereinbarung für den Wagenladungsverkehr 2011 durch das BAV einen Prüfauftrag zu Innovationen im Wagenladungsverkehr (WLV) und insbesondere zu Einsatzmöglichkeiten einer Intra-Zugkommunikation erhalten. Das Institut für Verkehrsplanung und Transportsysteme der ETH Zürich erarbeitete eine Übersicht und Bewertung verschiedener Systeme der Intra-Zugkommunikation im schweizerischen WLV. Dazu wurde eine Methodik zur Nutzenermittlung entwickelt und angewendet, welcher eine Analyse der betrieblichen und technischen Prozesse im Schienenverkehr zugrunde liegt. Die Bewertung verschiedener Varianten geschient durch die Vergabe von Nutzenpunkten.

In order to obtain subsidies for its single wagonload business, SBB Cargo - the Swiss Federal Railways' freight subsidiary - was obliged by the Swiss Federal Office of Transport to support research in the field of on-board communication networks. Therefore the Institute for Transport Planning and Systems (IVT) at the ETH Zurich conducted a study comparing and evaluation different communication systems for freight trains. The methodology developed by IVT is based in an analysis of the operational and technical processes involved in the production of a single wagonload transport. Different train communication systems are compared through a score-based evaluation.
