dc.description.abstractMode choice between reefer bulk and container in seaborne cold chains for time sensitive products is a practical problem, in which limited studies are available to guide decision makers. This study thoroughly investigates the cold chain mode choice problem by selecting shipping mode (containerized transport and bulk transport) for each shipment and determining shipment quantities and ship deployment in a multi-period planning environment with independent perishable product demands. Value-Based Management as a novel method in shipping is adopted to consider both economic and environmental objectives from operational and financial aspects. The value-based mode selection models also determine the sailing speed of the heterogeneous chartered reefer bulk fleet under different chartering terms. Furthermore, the paper evaluates greenhouse gas emissions from the cold chain shipping. Findings from a numerical example show that optimal ship speed decreases with a reducing rate when the bunker price increases and with a higher decline rate when goods are less perishable.en_US
