Goals of modelling:

  • Reconfirmation of the required handling capacity of TLCs’ of the core network;
  • Identification of bottlenecks of the core TLCs’ network;
  • Optimization of traffic flows;
  • Optimization of capacities of the TLCs;
  • Development of technical requirements on TLCs to be designed & engineered, as well as on
    parameters of technological equipment.

The following information is used as input data for modelling:

  • Topologies of the core network of TLCs and of the network of routes - for three types of transport &
    technological systems (the TTSs of container, contrailer and high-speed freight transportation);
  • Parameters of the rolling stock – volume and load capacities of wagons and trains;
  • Parameters of intermodal transport units - volume and load capacities of units;
  • Parameters of cargo – types of cargo, weight of a unit of cargo;
  • Individual loading / unloading standards per each TLC.

The following operations are carried out during the modelling:

  • Spatialization of models (spatial scaling with the usage of geo-referencing data and codes of stations
    to identify actual distances and exact dynamics of trains’ movements;
  • Calculations of schedules for each rout of each type of trains;
  • Time scaling (1 minute of model time corresponds to 1 day of real-time) and timing to match trains
    traffic schedules;
  • Online calculations of handling volumes (in loading units and in tonnes);
  • Dynamic visualization of movements and display of results at fixed model parameters.
