Green Logistics

This research project addresses the environmental impact of freight transportation. We develop network design models and routing algorithms for freight, which consider traditional measures, like cost or time, and greenhouse gas emissions. Our solutions support the research in the field of green logistics and show trade-offs between traditional and emission-oriented objectives.
