Evolutionary Freight Transportation Planning
In this paper, we present the freight transportation planning component of the INWEST project. This system utilizes an evolutionary algorithm with intelligent search operations in order to achieve a high utilization of resources and a minimization of the distance travelled by freight carriers in real-world scenarios. We test our planner rigorously with real-world data and obtain substantial improvements when compared to the original freight plans. Additionally, different settings for the evolutionary algorithm are studied with further experiments and their utility is verified with statistical tests.
