Minimizing Costs in Crude Oil Transportation
The problem addressed in this paper is as follows: At each of a number of origin ports is available a given quantity of a single type of crude oil. Likewise, we are given quantities of crude oil required by a number of refineries (destination ports) in order to meet their production schedules. Finally a fleet of tankers with given volume capacity, weight capacity and speeds is available.
