On 04/03/2022, Naoki Kosuge (M2, Shibasaki lab), Department of Systems Innovation, received Logistics Research Encouragement Award at the Japan Logistics Society
〈Name of award and short explanation about the award〉
The Logistics Research Encouragement Award, awarded by the Japan Logistics Society, is given to outstanding young logistics researchers who have achieved particularly outstanding results enrolled in educational and research institutions to which at least three regular members of the Japan Logistics Society belong.
〈About awarded research〉
Title: Extension of Global Logistics Intermodal Network Simulation (GLINS) Model to include Dry Bulk Cargo
Abstract: This study develops a more comprehensive GLINS model by adding the dry bulk cargo shipping network in the existing model which focused on only the container cargo shipping. Concretely, I select 76 iron ore ports and 130 coal ports based on maritime shipping record extracted from AIS data, develop the vessel size selection model between export and import ports, and develop a cargo assignment model (route choice model) by integrating the dry bulk maritime shipping network with the existing global intermodal transport network which shares the capacity of land transport with container transport.
〈Your impression & future plan〉
First of all, I would like to express my deepest gratitude to Prof. Shibasaki and those who supported me in receiving this award. I am very proud to receive such a prestigious award. In Shibasaki Laboratory, I had very diverse, unique, and fruitful experiences, such as daily research activities, seminars, submitting papers to journals, presentations at international conferences, and fieldwork in overseas. Although I will be leaving the university, I will continue to make efforts to contribute to society by making the most of the experience I have gained through my research activities.
