The WCM focuses on modelling global freight flows, whereas NODUS is more oriented on modelling freight transport within Europe, emphasizing mode choice and multimodal chains. When appropriate, the two models may be combinated. In such cases WCM calculates the global freight transport from/to the European harbours and NODUS performs a detailed, multimodal assignment of the freight transport within Europe.
Transport & Mobility Leuven’s model experts are active both in applying the model and in continuously improving and upgrading both freight transport models.
