Download A Liner Shipping Network Design: Routing and Scheduling by Volker Windeck PDF

By Volker Windeck

​The liner transport community layout supplies schedules and routes for ships that always stopover at harbours on a closed around journey. Examples of such ships are box ships that during many instances retain a weekly harbour traveling frequency. Volker Windeck elaborates a liner transport community layout strategy which isn't in simple terms contemplating the harbours to be visited, shipment to be transported and variety of ships to be had, but in addition considers environmental affects. also the profit contribution of different propulsion method is also analysed. vast numerical assessments point out that major rate reductions are got while utilizing this liner delivery community layout approach.

They propose a large neighbourhood search heuristic for solving this problem. With this extension they were able to show that a better utilisation a ship’s capacity has a significant impact on the revenue generated. With a rise in fuel price the beneficial effect is even larger. A very similar problem is also described by Lin and Liu (2011). They use a genetic solution approach to simultaneously solve a ship allocation, freight assignment and ship routing problem in a tramp shipping environment. Compared to Korsvik et al.

A reduction in speed has significant impact, since vessel fuel consumption has a cubic function in regard to speed. To show the effect of slow steaming a model for determining emissions as presented by Kranke (2009) can be used. 43) The energy consumption ECnor for the normal speed is multiplied by the squared fraction of reduced speed Vred to the normal speed setting Vnor . The CO2 emission measured in grams CO2 per transported ton and kilometre results from multiplying the energy consumption with the CO2 -factor (for different CO2 -factors, according to different ship size, see Kranke 2009, p.

The main task of this model is to consider an uncertain cargo demand distribution while maintaining a promised service level. This problem has been solved as a chance constraint mixed integer programming model. Another paper on the Fleet Size & Mix Problem by Meng and Wang (2011) states that ships should only be chartered on a short-term basis. For a long-term planning horizon it is cheaper to purchase ships. Their multiperiod liner ship fleet planning problem (MPLSFP) under given deterministic container shipment demand has been modelled as a scenario-based dynamic programming approach and can be solved by any shortest path algorithm.
