Strategic Network Planning

  • Optimization of given network structures in rail and road freight traffic
  • Planning of network structures („green field“) in rail freight traffic and road freight traffic
  • Multi-stage network planning considering different location types, hub functions and capacities
  • Consideration of real world transport costs (e.g., based on vehicles or trains) and handling costs in logistics facilities
  • Modeling & Algorithms:
    • Mixed integer network design and flow models (e.g., hub location)
    • Multi-allocation-models (individual routing for each transport relation) including real world transport costs based on required vehicles
    • Branch & bound, branch & cut, and column generation algorithms
    • Problem specific heuristics
