Freight Transport Logistics

Freight Transport Logistics focuses on the planning, organisation, management, control and execution of freight transport operations in the supply chain. 

CENTRAL researchers have worked on several projects related to Freight Transport and Logistics. Recently, we have been working on several decision problems for transhipment terminals and general routing aspects arising in the industry related to 1) the optimization of transhipment operations, 2) vehicle routing and scheduling with environmental and societal considerations and 3) hazardous materials transportation. We are developing mathematical models and algorithms that are able to capture the inherent dynamics and stochasticity of the problems.
