Effective large scale terminal

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter or book articleProfessional

Abstract

Field studies were conducted to gather information on well-functioning terminals, their machines, logistics and infrastructure. Based on the survey, work studies and cost calculations of different terminal functions, supply costs of woody biomass through terminals were defined. Finally, the most effective terminal supply chains were compared with direct supply chains from forest to plant.
