We survey research on hazardous materials transportation in the areas of risk analysis, routing/scheduling and facility location. Our focus is primarily on work done since 1980, and on research which is methodological rather than empirical. We also limit our focus to transport by land-based...
Hazardous materials transportation is an activity of vital economic importance for any industrial society. At the same time, however, shipments of these materials create risks—the potential for harm to human health and/or the environment. The importance of hazardous materials transportation...
Dealing with hazardous materials and wastes has become a problem of major concern for countries throughout the world. This paper presents a model useful in making routing decision, for either material or waste shipments, and siting decisions for waste treatment facilities. Risk, cost, and risk...
In a recent paper, R. Gopalan, K. Kolluri, R. Batta and M. Karwan (1990) consider a model to route a set of hazardous materials shipments from an origin to a destination, so as to minimize the global risk to the community while simultaneously maintaining a desired level of equity between zones...
Risk assessment can be expedited and the results made more reliable by using existing information to its fullest advantage, especially when comparing relative risks. This principle is demonstrated in the context of transporting flammable liquid chemicals in bulk through New York City, where two...
The development of a system of storage facilities for spent fuel rods from commercial nuclear reactors requires solution of a model which simultaneously sites the storage facilities, assigns reactors to those facilities and chooses routes for the shipment of the spent fuel. The problem is...
Transport Carrier Costing , by Wayne Kenneth Talley. Gordon & Breach Science Publishers, New York, 1988, 389 pp.—reviewed by Sergio R. Jara-Díaz. Gender, Transport, and Employment: The Impact of Travel Constraints , edited by Margaret Grieco, Laurie Pickup, and Richard Whipp. Gower Publishing...
This paper studies the bargaining between a shipper and potential carriers during the selection of a specific carrier and the resulting size of a transfer payment, when carriers' accident probabilities are proprietary information (i.e., the probability of accident and the safety investment of a...
