Assessing the technical efficiency of intermodal freight transport chains using a modified network DEA approach

Transportation Research Part E: Logistics and Transportation Review, 2019, vol. 126, issue C, 66-86
This paper presents a modified Network DEA model (NDEA) to measure the performance of intermodal freight transport (IFT) chains and to find the sources of inefficiencies. The model addresses two challenges in the application of NDEA to the IFT domain: first, the chains may differ in the number of divisions (i.e., transshipment/transportation activities); and second, one needs to define a relevant intermediate service. For purposes of illustration, the model is applied to a particular European IFT network for which the inefficient transport/transshipment segments are identified and discussed.
