Design and Development of a New Algorithm for Efficient Multimodal Transportation

Mrs. T. Santha, Dr. T. Devi


Mathematical techniques are used to solve the multimodal transportation problem and the objective function of the mathematical model is used to determine the minimum cost and minimum time of delivery of goods over a multimodal transport system. While applying mathematical models and optimization techniques for the multimodal transportation problem, it has been found that there is no readymade modeling technique that is available which can be readily used to represent the features of multimodal transportation problem. This paper concentrates on the study and analysis of multimodal transportation problem and proposes an algorithm to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of the solution for multimodal transportation problem.



Keywords : Multimodal transport, Shortest path, Breakpoint.
