Project 401. Simulation of transportation systems with consolidation

Principal researcher : T.G. Crainic
Collaborators : I. Bilegan, M. Gendreau

This project focuses on the development of models for simulating the operations of carriers with consolidation (e.g., railway companies, LTL (less than truck load) trucking companies, maritime transport companies). We use dynamic numerical simulation in discrete time. Representing the diverse “layers” of the flows circulating within these systems (e.g., the trains, blocks and railcars used in rail transport), as well as the operations carried out in the classification and consolidation terminals, offers a significant challenge for modelling and computation.
