Robust Continuous-Time Service Network Design under Travel Time Uncertainty

The continuous-time service network design problem (CTSNDP) has wide applications in the field of transportation, but it is complicated by travel time uncertainty resulting from unpredictable traffic conditions. Incorporating uncertain travel times poses a significant challenge, as time-indexed mixed-integer linear programming (MILP) formulations commonly used to solve the CTSNDP with deterministic travel times become impractical. … Read more

The Continuous Time Inventory Routing Problem

We consider a continuous time variant of the Inventory Routing Problem in which the maximum quantity that can delivered at a customer depends on the customer’s storage capacity and product inventory at the time of the delivery. We investigate critical components of a dynamic discretization discovery algorithm and demonstrate in an extensive computational study that … Read more
