Enhancing the carriers synergy in the full-truck transportation industry

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

This paper deals with the maximization of the synergy within a carrier's transportation network. This key concept of synergy is particularly important when participating in combinatorial auctions for the procurement in full-truckload transportation service. Our ideas derive from the advances achieved in the field of graph theory and are based on the technique of minimizing the distance between the booked and auctioneed lanes. We develop two optimization formulations that mainly differ in the objective function and that have been described by using an illustrative example that has taken from the literature and suitably adapted for the purpose of our application.
