Dr. J.M. (Jaap) Vleugel
Education and non-TUD years
Jaap started with general economics (macro- and micro-economics) and business IT at the Faculty of Economics and Business Sciences of the Free University in Amsterdam. His MSc (Drs.) thesis dealt with road pricing. He was invited as junior researcher at the Economic and Social Institute (ESI)/Dpt. of Spatial Economics while working on his internship project for the OECD. He mastered project management in many externally financed spatial- and transport(-economic) projects.
The following few years he spent in non-academic ventures: A logistic software start-up (simulation software), a mature transport consultancy (freight transport) and finally environmental consultancy (nature finance, impact studies).
Jaap started working on his PhD topic (Transport and Land-use scenarios), not related with his full-time jobs, just before he left Free University and continued as an external PhD candidate, which was a pleasant distraction. The thesis was defended in 2000.
The Delft research experience (2001-2011)
He started at (former) TU Delft's OTB Research Institute as member of the Freight Transport section. He worked as project leader in many externally funded projects in areas like city logistics and railways. It was an enriching and stimulating experience to work in a dedicated research environment. Business-like, short lines, hence fast decision-making and very professionally managed.
The Delft education experience (2011-202x)
Jaap gradually became involved in bachelor and master courses. His extensive research and management experience enable him to learn students how to successfully manage the content and process of their projects.
Jaap has experience in the following areas:
- Logistics (inbound, outbound, warehousing, information, networks) and freight transport
- Economics (macro-, micro-) and financial issues, marketing & communication
- Externalities of transport: climate and environment
- Land-use: (business) location choice
- Individual and collective (public) transport
- Railways (passenger, freight), trucking, air transport (passenger, cargo, MRO), barge
- Multi-modal terminals and hubs
- Transport innovations: Autonomous vehicles, hyperloop, drones
- Transport-, environmental- and spatial policy
- Transport and vehicle technology and maintenance
- Tools: Systems engineering, (logistic) optimisation (lean, simulation), scenarios, excel models, mca, mcba etc.
Team player & one-man army, multi-specialist, multi-lingual.
In a world without convincing leadership in many areas, it is good to know that there are still people around who have the brains, the range, the strength and integrity to help their customers not only achieve their primary goals, but change their mindset structurally, to become more self-confident and mature. Work with me and never run out of options. Send an invite to explore mutual interests. Stay healthy!
