Founded in 1829 with the mission of creating value for the benefit of society, DTU is an international elite technical university where education, scientific advice, and innovation rest on a solid foundation of world-class research. The Management Engineering Department of DTU develops management tools and promotes process optimisation by applying a combination of theoretical engineering perspectives, models and methods.
Sustainability is a key dimension of the growth strategy of DTU Management Engineering and sustainable transport is one of its focal research areas. Research carried out during the last years includes decision support tools for transport operators, emissions control policies and governance modeling. The Department looks at multimodal freight corridors and develops methods and KPIs to assess their logistical and environmental performance as well as models for efficient governance in a multi-stakeholder setting.

“If I had to single out the most persistent obstacle for integrated logistics today, I would suggest the lack of cooperation among the actors involved. The trust needed for sharing information requires a mindset shift that no computer can provide. The Scandria®2Act project works towards bringing some of these actors closer.” says Allan Larsen, Professor and Head of the Operations Management group at DTU Management Engineering.

Within Scandria®2Act, DTU coordinates the project activities that assess existing offers and preconditions for the advancement of multimodal freight transport in the project partner regions. In relation to the Ro-Ro services connecting the ports of the region, DTU examines their stability in view of the more stringent regulations with regard to the sulphur content of marine fuels that were recently enforced. Furthermore, DTU investigates the characteristics of multimodal transport that the cargo owners and freight forwarders of the region consider critical for improving its market penetration.
