Abstract

The main objective of the EU funded FP6 collaborative research project LOGBASED was to develop innovative roro vessels and transport systems enabling motorways of the sea to become competitive against their land borne competitors. The developed methodology and tools, which consider requirements and expectations of all transport chain stakeholders, permitted the design of higher performance and efficiency ships operating as an integral part of dynamic intermodal transport chains. The implementation of the LOGBASED-approach, provides a unique guidance to ship designers, yards, cargo owners and ship owners in realising a business opportunity within intermodal transport where the sea transport is the dominating leg. This paper summarizes results of the LOGBASED project and presents the latest enhancements to the LOGBASED approach and its application to other ship types and markets.
