Simulation of unit loading device inventory in airline operations

Simulation of unit loading device inventory in airline operations
Commercial airlines often encounter imbalances in their inventory of unit loading devices (ULDs). A stochastic simulation model was developed to evaluate inventory policies. The structure of the simulation model is described. We evaluate a minimum ULD loading configuration policy and demonstrate how it reduces ULD shortages and helps balance ULD network flow and inventory. As a result, airlines can reduce operating expenses and improve customer service. Finally, we give future directions for studying ULD inventory.
