Abstract:InfoStructure, a company focused on travel and information technology is planning to release a transportation planning and load sharing platform called ‘Upload!’; targeted at transportation companies with a relative small amount of vehicles. Over 75% of the Dutch transportation companies have 5 employees or less, indicating that the market share of small transportation companies is large. For these companies, inefficient orders (i.e. orders that cause high transportation costs compared to the transportation fee) are difficult to relocate to other transportation companies, since existing load sharing solutions require manual monitoring and sharing of freight, wherefore smaller companies do not have the required manpower. Furthermore these companies don’t have the economy of scale larger companies have. This transportation planning and load sharing platform InfoStructure aims to create must consists of three parts, namely a) the routing problem, b) selection of inefficient orders and trips and c) a matching algorithm that seeks how to exchange inefficient orders, see Figure 1. Aim of this thesis is to create the mathematical intelligence, i.e., the algorithms needed to find a solution to the three parts of ‘Upload!’.
