The new silk road – Study of transloading events

Introduction and context

The New Silk Road, a strategic Chinese project, aims to enhance economic cooperation between China and Europe. This study focuses on transshipment events and their impact on freight transportation, with particular attention to load stability and transport constraints.

Methodology

The study uses data loggers to collect information on vibrations and stresses experienced by goods during transportation. This approach allows for a detailed and precise analysis of transport conditions.

Data analysis and results

The results reveal significant variations in transport conditions, affecting load stability. The identified types of constraints and their frequency are discussed, highlighting the challenges of intercontinental transportation on the New Silk Road.

Discussion and implications

This section explores the implications for European manufacturers and the issues related to distribution and transportation. The New Silk Road offers benefits in terms of transport duration and cost, but also presents challenges, including disruption of maritime transport and environmental impact.

Conclusions and perspectives

The synthesis of results underscores the importance of the New Silk Road for the transportation and packaging sector. Suggestions for future research are provided, particularly regarding innovation in freight transportation and qualification of distribution plans.
