10/06/2014Assistant Professor M. Alp Ertem received a career award for 157,100TL (approximately $73,724) for his project entitled "Sustainable Humanitarian Logistics Through Intermodal Freight Transportation (113M493)" under TÜBİTAK 3501 - National Young Researchers Career Development Program (CAREER). The purpose of this program is to encourage young scientists with Ph.D. degrees and who are at the beginning of their scientific careers by supplying project funds for their studies. Dr. Ertem is among one of the four scientists in Turkey who received a career support in 2013 from the Industrial Engineering discipline. The key idea of Dr. Ertem's project is to provide for the beneficiaries of a disaster using intermodal transportation when single mode alternative becomes unusable or infeasible. This project explores the opportunities of intermodal freight transportation in sustainable humanitarian aid delivery. The research area involves two main domains: (1) humanitarian aid delivery, and (2) intermodal freight transportation. The first domain is often called "humanitarian logistics" by the academicians and practitioners in the disaster management field. The second domain is intermodal freight transportation. Intermodal transportation is defined as the type of transportation that involves multiple modes. This project aims to investigate the intersection of these two research domains from the perspective of sustainability. The outcomes of this project will help Prime Ministry Disaster and Emergency Management Presidency (AFAD) reach beneficiaries of a disaster in shorter time, with fewer disruptions, and in an efficient way. The high cost transportation investments could only be justified by using these investments in different ways such as freight transportation. This project will enhance the application of already funded intermodal transportation projects from a humanitarian logistics standpoint such as the Transport Corridor Europe - Caucasus – Asia (TRACECA).
