Real-Life Application at an Internationally Operating Freight Forwarding Company

  • Steffen Schorpp


At the beginning of this chapter, a detailed analysis of the general requirements for long- haul transportation in Europe is conducted (Section 5.1). Afterwards, the specific planning situation at the cooperating freight forwarding company is investigated (Section 5.2). In Section 5.3 the main adjustments applied to the existing MNS procedure are outlined. In Section 5.4 the preprocessing of the available real-life test data set and the derivation of benchmark objective function values are illustrated. Finally, computational results, generated with the adapted MNS procedure for the real-life test data set are presented (Section 5.5).
