Modeling of Transport and Logistical Processes at the Local Level: The Case of Tatarstan
- 10 Downloads
Transport flows at the local level (within the boundaries close to counties) are the basic links (elementary units), from which the formation of more powerful flows begins. This is one of the most complicated links of the logistics chain, which is the primary element of the “hinterland” formation for the transport and logistics nodes. The potential of the transport and logistics hub and the choice of mechanisms for optimizing transport and logistics processes at more global levels (meso- and macro-levels) will depend on the flows efficiency in the hinterland area. The work presents approaches to the study and modeling of transport-logistical processes at the local level, as well as the mechanisms for identifying the most acceptable space-time organization variants of transport and logistics processes. Modeling was carried out by the example of Yelabuga municipal district in the Republic of Tatarstan (Russia).
The research was carried out at the expense of a grant from the Russian Science Foundation (project № 17-78-10066) “Optimization of the transport and logistics system of Russia and the regions as an instrument of sustainable development.”
The work is performed according to the Russian Government Program of Competitive Growth of Kazan Federal University.
