Cost Minimisation of Multiplevehicle Shipments

Cost Minimisation of Multiplevehicle Shipments Describes how an LPbased onedimensional packing algorithm can beused to minimise costs in three different multiplevehicle shipmentplanning problems. The three applications considered are 1 shippingindustrial trucks by container when weight is the dominant constraint2 shipping automotive parts in racks by truck when volume is thedominant constraint and 3 shipping large rolls of paper in railcarsof varying size with incentive rates when volume is the dominantconstraint. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png International Journal of Physical Distribution & Logistics Management Emerald Publishing
