Abstract

The object of this paper is the statistical study of some variables of the cycle of a road-rail intermodal terminal. The variables considered are the total average time of the terminal cycle, relative to the truck vehicle, and the number of vehicles entering the terminal. The study of the variables was carried out at the terminal of Verona, Quadrante Europa. The first part of the paper reports the execution of the surveys, the second regards the calibration of specific statistical models related to the variables.
