Dr. J.C. (Hans) van Ham

Hans studied spatial economics with a focus on transport, at the university of Groningen and started his career as a lecturer at the Traffic Academy in Tilburg. After a sabbatical year spent at Ports Canada in Ottawa (Ont.) he joined the Dutch Ministry of Transport as a (senior) policy advisor in the field of freight transport. Since 1995 he is employed at Delft University of Technology.

Research

Intermodal transport and seaports are at the heart of the research activities. Since accessibility of the ports is of key importance to the Dutch economy, much research effort is put in finding technical as well as organizational solutions for bottlenecks. These include, among others, innovative transport systems, public-private partnerships and sophisticated governance with an open mind for lessons to be learned from the past.

  • TB141Ta, TB242Ta (Introduction in the transport systems) provide the basics of freight transport and points of transshipment (seaport etc.);
  • CT3366 (Transport Economics and External Effects) explains the economic background of transport phenomenon such as market monopolies, congestion and external costs;
  • SEN9715 (Designing Transport Policies deals with the components of the policy cycle and deems establishing comprehensive policies an engineering activity;
  • Supervising BSc- and MSc-theses.
