Announcement about Special International Seminar on Freight Data Collection
We would like to cordially invite you to attend a special international seminar on freight data collection where Dr Vittorio Marzano, Assistant Professor at the University of Naples Federico II (Italy) will make a presentation about his latest research achievements. Anybody who is concerned with this seminar can join it. The details are shown below. Please contact Prof. Hironori Kato (kato[@] for more details.
1. Time and date: 17:30-19:00, August 25 (Thursday), 2016
2. Place: Seminar Room of International Project lab, 3rd floor of Engineering Building No.11, Hongo Campus The University of Tokyo (Campus map is available at
3. Presentation title: Freight data collection and sensing: some research prospects
4. Presenter: Dr Vittorio Marzano, Assistant Professor at the Department of Civil, Architectural and Environmental engineering, University of Naples Federico II (Italy)
5. Abstract:
The seminar illustrates research activities on freight data collection: in fact, lack of data and knowledge is acknowledged as a main factor preventing implementation of ground-breaking policies, assessment of freight game-changers and management of inherent complexity of freight demand.
A recent attempt to overcome this issue leverages data collection of huge amounts of passive vehicles tracking observations based on GPS and smartphones: in this respect, an innovative approach in passenger data collection is Future Mobility Sensing (FMS), proposed by the Intelligent Transportation System lab at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in the US, and under extension to freight. A demonstration of innovative truck drivers’ survey is presented in a real case study in Italy, wherein trucks of an ice-cream/refrigerated products delivery company have been tracked for more than a month using GPS loggers, complemented with phone-based survey for end-of-tour/end-of-day data validation.
The seminar is part of the project SMURFS – Unified framework for next-generation data collection, sensing and modelling in future urban freight systems funded by the Università di Napoli Federico II and Compagnia di San Paolo under the STAR research program.
6. Short bio of presenter
Dr Vittorio Marzano is tenure-track assistant professor at the University of Naples Federico II (Italy), where he teaches Freight and logistics. He holds a PhD in Transport Engineering from the University of Napoli (2006) and an executive course in Supply chain management and distributive logistics from the Business School of the Politecnico di Milano (2010). He collaborates with many universities and research centres worldwide, including the Intelligent Transportation Systems lab of the MIT (Boston, USA) and the Singapore-MIT alliance for research and technology (Singapore). His research interests cover various areas of transport engineering: freight modelling and policy-making, discrete choice modelling, o-d flow estimation/updating, network sensors location, city logistics. Research results are published in 20 journal papers and more than 60 conference proceedings. He has participated to more than 20 national/international research projects. He is also consultant in transport projects in Italy and abroad, and an external expert of the Italian Ministry of Transport and Infrastructures.
