Robust and Large Scale Network Optimization in Logistics

Alexander T. Richter
This thesis explores possibilities and limitations of extending classical combinatorial optimization problems for network flows and network design. We propose new mathematical models for logistics networks that feature commodities with multidimensional properties, e.g. their mass and volume, to capture consolidation effects of commodities with complementing properties. We provide new theoretical insights and solution methods with immediate practical impact that we test on real-world instances from the automotive, chemical, and retail industry. The first model is...
