In addition, these results allow the development of simulation models for biomass supply based on discrete-event simulation or static simulation approaches Asikainen , Asikainen Therefore such data is needed to develop vehicle routing algorithm or verify respectively improve already existing models in the timber transport sector especially for minimizing driving times and reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
The study results were also used in the vehicle routing analysis from Oberscheider et al. Regarding the productivity of the analyzed transport system, the average moisture content of the chipped material was If the material was stored longer, the moisture content would decrease and the transport capacity could increase. Thus, the transport costs could be reduced easily. In the future, FMS-protocols will become easier to handle in different truck models.
In addition, new machinery enables the availability of digital data for monitoring machine activity based on logistic process analysis e. Furthermore, the use of software applications must become easier to use. Interfaces between already existing systems, such as book-keeping or enterprise resource planning systems, are necessary to support the implementation of fleet management systems. Nevertheless, detailed process analysis requires more detailed data collection with additional effort by the drivers. Replacing an on-site time study with skilled scientists by using a fleet management system with automated analysis will be still difficult to conduct.

Effects of moisture content on transport..
N2 - The macroscopic formulation of moisture transport in wood below the fiber saturation point has motivated many research efforts in the past two decades. Many experiments demonstrated the difference in steady state and transient moisture transport and the inadequacy of models derived for steady state transport when used to describe transient processes. A suitable modeling approach was found by distinguishing between the two phases of water in wood, namely bound water in the cell walls and water vapor in the lumens. Such models are capable of reproducing transient moisture transport processes, but the physical origin of the coupling between the two phases remains unclear.
In this paper, the physical background on the microscale is clarified and transformed into a comprehensive macroscopic description, ending up with a dual-scale model comprising three coupled differential equations for bound water, water vapor, and internal energy, as well as a simplified microscale model for determination of the coupling term.
