Abstract

The transport planning problem deals with moving goods from one location to another by using the available modes of transport. What makes this problem interesting is that intermodal transport of goods is also allowed.

The territory planning problem basically involves partitioning a set of customers into a given number of clusters that are “balanced”, “compact”, and as nonoverlapping as possible.

We will briefly talk about and define these problems. Then, we will take a short look at the way we solved them.
