A Decision Method for Disruption Management Problems in Intermodal Freight Transport
In this paper, we propose a new decision method for dealing with disruption events in intermodal freight transport. First of all, the forecasting decision for the duration of disruption events is presented, which decides whether a rearrangement is needed. Secondly, a network-based optimization model for intermodal freight transport disruption management is built. Then an improved depth-first search strategy is developed, which is beneficial to automatically generating the routes and achieving the recovery strategies quickly. Finally, a numerical example is applied to verify the decision method. The new decision method supports the real-time decision making for disruption management problems.
