Dr. B. (Bart) Wiegmans
Dr. Bart Wiegmans is senior researcher at the Department of Transport & Planning. His main fields of expertise are in intermodal freight transport, ports and terminals, transport efficiencies, transport geography and new transport technologies. His research topics include data-driven efficiency analysis, new transport technology design, truck platooning and cost optimization in freight transport.
He completed his undergraduate studies in Regional and Transport Economics at the Vrije Universiteit, Amsterdam, the Netherlands (1996). He received his Doctorate in Transport Economics from the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam (2003). As a researcher he has worked on numerous studies concerning, (intermodal) freight transport, infrastructure, ports, and terminals. His main interests are in research in efficiencies, cost and quality impacts of new technologies in intermodal freight transport and infrastructure.
He teaches courses on freight transport systems: analysis and modelling and on transport geography. He also supervises PhD students doing research on synchromodal transport optimization, competition on freight transport networks, optimized transport networks in urbanized areas and on optimization of Inter Terminal Transport in port areas.
