Optimizing Route Choice And Capacity Distribution for Transporting Perishable Food Products Prabhu
One of the biggest challenges in food transportation currently, is maintaining quality throughout the transportation lead times. It is highly essential for companies to find an optimal balance between costs as well as quality to provide the best service to their customers. To help with this problem, we developed a model that helps factor quality as well as costs in routing decision making. This paper lays the groundwork for a bi-objective programming model that focuses on maximizing revenue for organic farms that transport these food products, while at the same time minimizing quality degradation. We compare two models, one just factoring cost while the other factors cost as well as quality. A case study is applied to the models to see how diverse the decisions are for the two systems.
