Seminar Title: A Behavioral Freight Transportation Modeling System

Speaker: Dr. Kazuya Kawamura
(Associate Professor, College of Urban Planning and Public Affairs, University of Illinois, Chicago)

Seminar Description:
Compared against passenger travels, freight transportation is a relatively less-researched field in terms of advanced demand modeling.
The main challenges to build reliable freight demand models include lack of data, complexity of decision-making in freight system,
lack of proper validation process, etc. In the last decade, researchers around the world and the field have rapidly made advancements
in many fronts, including data collection, modeling frameworks and operational strategies. However, there are still significant gaps
in terms of our understanding of the fundamentals and the nature of freight movement systems and their behavioral decision making process.
The presentation outlines a new framework for freight transportation modeling by incorporating more detailed logistics choices into
an operational large-scale freight transportation modeling system that has been under development at the University of Illinois, Chicago.
