Integrated operational transportation planning in a profit centre

Abstract

As shown in Chapter 3, the existing approaches to the integrated operational transportation planning problem considerably simplify the real planning process outlined in Chapter 2. Thus, a new theoretical frame to the integrated operational transportation planning problem, corresponding more to reality, is introduced in this chapter. The approach investigates the combined optimization problem of a freight forwarder applying self-fulfillment and different subcontraction types. The specification of the problem is shown in Section 4.1. Further associated problems worth analysis that relate to long-term aspects are presented in Section 4.2.
