How can we more efficiently connect ports, rail and roads

Dr Wira Redi explains the Australia-Indonesia Centre research project he is involved in. The project is investigating what combination of road and rail can shift the most container loads in and out of ports, and keep local traffic flowing.

Dr Redi is a research fellow with the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at Monash University.

The project is titled ‘Connectivity – From Sea to Rail, Sea to Road, Road to Rail’ and its principal investigators are Dr Hera Widyastuti, head of the Transport Laboratory at Institut Teknologi Sepuluh Nopember (ITS) and Professor Andreas Ernst from the School of Mathematical Sciences at Monash University.
