The Research on Railway Luggage & Package Shipping Plan Based on Service Network
Due to the particularity of railway luggage & package shipping organization and large requirement of luggage & package shipping, the problem of making luggage & package shipping plan is increasingly complex. In order to improve the efficiency of making luggage & package shipping plan and assist human work, this paper mainly discusses how to optimize the plan. Based on analyzing the characteristic of luggage & package shipping, this paper analyzes lots of factors that affects the rationality of the plan and establishes an optimization model with the objective of minimizing general cost based on service network, and then develops a Heuristic Algorithm. At last, the application of service network design model for luggage & package shipping and its solution approach are illustrated with the case.
