This talk will address the optimisation of transport routes of barge container ships with the objective to maximise the profit of a shipping company. This problem consists of determining the upstream and downstream calling sequence and the number of loaded and empty containers transported between any two ports. You will see how this problem can be mathematically formulated and how MATLAB can be used to obtain a solution. In conclusion, a detailed case study transportation analysis will illustrate how the proposed approach can be used by managers of barge shipping companies to make appropriate decisions and solve industrial problems.
