Mikhail Strukov,


The use of the hub-and spoke system which is based on liner shipping principles and include two hubs for transhipment operations which are located at the beginning and at the end of the TSR and both high ice-class vessels (for Arctic navigation) and non-ice-class vessels (for navigation in ice-free waters) assuming that it will increase the transport network's efficiency and flexibility. The primarily research method is Discrete event simulation. Our study explores a new possibility and opportunity for cargo transit, which carry implications for further research and policy . The main research question is whether the usage of TSR can be comparable in terms of CO2 emissions and transported cargo to the other maritime routes. We aim to simulate and evaluate the potential impact of the TSR, focusing on both its capacity to handle transport volumes and its environmental implications, specifically in terms of CO2 emissions. This dual approach not only fills a gap in existing research but also provides valuable insights into the route's utility and sustainability.
