Simultaneous fleet assignment and cargo routing using benders decomposition

By D. Li, H.-C. Huang, A. D. Morton and E.-P. Chew


In this paper, we incorporate the cargo routing problem into fleet assignment to model the fleet assignment more accurately. An integrated model and a Benders decomposition-based approach are developed to simultaneously obtain the optimal assignment of fleet to legs and the routing of forecasted cargo demand over the network. Computational experiments show that this integrated approach converges very fast for all different test scenarios
