Subject(s): Abstract: Syftet med denna genomförbarhetsstudie är att utreda hur fyllnadsgraden på sjötransporter kan kartläggas med hjälp av AIS-data (automatic identification system) och analysera vilken energieffektivisering som kan uppnås genom att öka fyllnadsgraden. Projektresultaten är ett steg mot utvecklingen av en metodik för att beräkna sjötransporters fyllnadsgrad i en större skala.Abstract: Transport activities can become more energy and cost efficient by improving the load factor, i.e. balancing the required and available capacity. Statistics about load factor are missing today, in particular for sea transports. There are unused opportunities to calculate load factor for sea transports by using innovative data collection techniques, enabled through digitalisation in terms of AIS (automatic identification system). The purpose of this pre-study is to investigate how the load factor can be mapped from AIS-data and analyse the energy efficiency potential of an increased load factor in sea transports. The pre-study will involve shipowners, logistics and transport operators, as well as goods owners in order to identify realistic scenarios for increased load factor. The results are a first step towards a methodology to calculate the load factor of sea transports on a larger scale, and to provide an indication of the energy efficiency potential of an increased load factor.
