Total Logistic Costs Efficiency with an Alternative for Consolidate Goods

EasyChair Preprint no. 1640

4 pagesDate: October 12, 2019


This paper considers an application of the capacitated transshipment problem on a real case of supply chain network design, considering a problem of large-scale dimension as the main principle in the modeling of important natural and social phenomena. The problem first is formulated as a mixed-integer linear programming model. Then, a Benders decomposition algorithm is appropriately developed as the solution methodology. In the presented algorithm, the problem is decomposed into two models, called master and subproblem. The master problem is improved by means of a preprocessing and solving the primal of the subproblem, exploiting its network structure. Moreover, the Benders Cuts, optimality and feasibility, are developed for the algorithm. The general relative performance of the algorithm is proposed for its experimentation and evaluation.

Keyphrases: Benders decomposition, logistic costs, supply chain, transshipment problem
