A MULTIMODE MULTIPRODUCT NETWORK ASSIGNMENT MODEL FOR STRATEGIC PLANNING OF FREIGHT FLOW

The authors present in this paper a normative model for simulating freight flows of multiple products on a multimodal network. The multimodal aspects of the transportation system considered are accounted for in the network representation chosen. The multiproduct aspects of the model are exploited in the solution procedure, which is a Gauss-Seidel-Linear Approximation Algorithm. An important component of the solution algorithm is the computation of shortest paths with intermodal transfer costs. Computational results obtained with this algorithm on a network that corresponds to the Brazil transportation network are presented. (A)
