Operational Planning Problems in Intermodal Freight Transportation


Jenny Nossak

This book addresses logistics problems (e.g., routing and partitioning problems) that are encountered in intermodal freight transportation. The reader is given an overview of the relevant literature, as well as of different mathematical formulations. Moreover, algorithmic solution approaches are suggested which are specially designed for problems that arise in the context of intermodal freight transportation, but can be applied to other areas as well.
