- Good mix. But the country assignment was too long!»
- ok»
- På tok för mycket inlämningar!!! Dessa tar jättemycket tid, vilket gör att jag inte har hunnit läsa varken boken eller några artiklar, vilket jag troligtvis skulle ha lärt mig väldigt mycket mer på. Jag har lagt mycket tid på skolan men för mycket av denna tid (all tid) har gått åt på inlämnigarna. »
- to little time for studing on your own, the assignments took to much time!»
- I think everything was OK.»
- The best ever. Especially with such active teachers!»

- Hard to have time for own studies»
- The assignment part should be somehow shorter and lighter. I think it gave a big workload for the course which impacts little bit frustrating on other learning like articles, text book. »
- Lectures themselves were very very good. Guest lectures gave some different perspectives in which fulfill the understanding. Other materials were good also »
- It was good»
- It was okey»
- ok»
- to little time for own litterature studies»
- relatively good, interesting guest lectures »
- The assignments was so time demanding and I think the lectures was not that much of help. But I really liked the different areas the assignments covered. The guest lectures were so helpful, however I really didn"t like the textbook as it was so hard to read(the font size was really small and it had a lot of details which really didn"t help)»
- i really appreciate the lectures, this is where i learnt most. the site visits are also very appreciated.»
- ok. the cases did not seem so relevent though... »
- It works well and allows flexibility»

- Why so much details? Why should we know the calculations and not just the basics and logic behind them?» (Poor)
- I have to say that after the exam the course felt better because the exam reflected the course very well!» (Fair)
- I really liked the course! However, the workload of MPC with all the cases from that course together with the cases from this course was too much. it was a shame, because i did not really get a change to read the course literature and deepen my knowledge enough... it was first when i started studying for the exam that i "remembered" how interesting the course is. » (Good)
- Thank you Violeta! And Dan, you are really addicted to this subject, and you showed that it"s possible to ask good questions, and that even a stupid question can be good :)» (Excellent)

21. What should definitely be preserved to next year?

- port visit»
- Studiebesöken»
- Port of Gothenburg visit»
- Site visit, especially the port one.»
- Everything, but maybe not the company assignment.»
- The study visits.»
- port visit and company visit »
- The site visits to Volvo and Port of Göteborg, intresting!»
- Site visits. Intermodal assingment. »
- Site visiting»
- site visits»
- Assignments»
- Site visits»
- site visits»
- Good site visits, guest lectures and ordinary lectures»
- Guest lectures and site visits»
- the site visits and the lectures are very good.»
- "intermodal Transport" case. the exercises classes. (calculations)»
- The lectures are good and so are the exercises»
- site visits»
- Visits»

22. What should definitely be changed to next year?

- country assignment.»
- Assignment about Country. Szhould be specified how long it should be i.e 3000 words. Semminary with presentation about country should be divided in groups. 4 hours listening presentations where some of them are simmilar is too long. 2 groups 2h each is enough.»
- Inlämningarna»
- The assignments 2 and 3 has to be changed!»
- Font of the book!»
- Probably the company assignment, and also the instructions for all assignments to clarify the level of analysis. It seemed to be rather low to me, and to my group.»
- The book font size.»
- The quantitative exercises add very little understanding to the rest of the course, why I consider them superfluos. This is especially true for the allocation algoritm.»
- The assigments, make them smaller and change the grading system.»
- Maybe think about the combination of assignments. ATS could be compressed so that the key idea preserves but workload is less. »
- textbook»
- remove the country case»
- NA»
- The assignment transport systems should be changed, too much about countries demography and geography did not feel so giving.»
- remove assignment transport systems and the calculations.»
- To many assignments and not very good. Better with less and little bigger. The country assignment didnt fell adequate at all»
- the workload(if it"s going to be in the same quarter with MPC course)»
- the balance between the two courses MPC and FTS... it was too many cases that the real content of the courses somehow got lost to me. »
- "Transport Systems". guest lecture with toooo many slides....»
- The "country case" is not a good way to learn about transport systems, actually it is a horrible assignment. You spend most of the time, and we are talking hours , to find information. It was soooo difficult to find good information. And this information was pretty much useless for the exam, which is not making the assignment funnier. It would be better to ONLY concentrate on Part 2, the analysis. SKIP Part 1.»
