Mode of Vehicle Coordination Supporting Based on Integer-Scheme

The Hub-and-Spoke Network System is traditionally adopted to transport multitudes of goods at plazas of harbors or train stations. However, when plaza is close to demand positions and the number of goods reaches a certain size; this mode is not beneficial for saving distribution cost. In order to save the distribution cost in these conditions under the consideration of multitude economy, a mode of vehicle coordination supporting was constructed and a cost model was established based on integer-scheme of zero or one. The cost difference in various circumstances between these two modes was evaluated by visual tests. This study will provide a necessary reference to decrease distribution cost.
