132 Container Logistics System Optimization in Co-Modal Networks: Focus on East Africa Container Flows
Download citation file:
Steady growth in cargo throughput coupled with infrastructural constraints has strained the freight networks and logistics operations in many developing countries. This has resulted into congestion at ports and higher logistics costs associated with port-hinterland connectivity. In turn higher logistics costs limit the competitive ability and effective participation of affected countries in the global economy. This paper proposes and presents a Co-modality Logistics Network Optimization Model based on LINGO Mathematical Modeling Language for solving container flow problem in multi-stage multi-modal transport corridors.
