Abstract

This special issue of Transport Research Part E: Logistics and Transportation Review features a selection of advanced versions of ideas discussed at the International Conference on Computational Logistics 2015, Delft, The Netherlands. In total, 64 papers where presented at the conference, of which 15 where in extended article form submitted for review, ultimately leading to 7 articles published as part of this special issue. The articles focus on models and approaches for real-time coordination and control of operations in transport logistics. In other terms, approaches that are able to control in real time
the coordination of multiple distributed components involved in the transport processes, such as transport flows over multiple modes including also sustainable modes such as rail and water, intermodality and/or synchromodality. Those approaches should moreover be able to deal with real-time dynamics, e.g., by means of closed-loop control: action plans are not merely determined, but also updated in real-time depending on actual circumstances and knowledge about disturbances.
