Substantiation of quantitative composition of consignments in organizing aggregated shipments in containers

Valeria Korol

Abstract


The task of substantiating quantitative composition of cargo batches during formation of aggregated shipments in containers was studied.

As a result of the study, a general formulation of the problem of substantiating quantitative composition of consignments during organization of LCL transportations was obtained, and particular versions of its interpretation were defined. To solve local production problems, some technologies have been developed that take into consideration peculiarities of situation and initial information on the planned shipment. The use of these technologies ensures maximum utilization of technical and operational capabilities of the container in formation of aggregated shipments of cargoes. For the first two versions of the task, the technology provides implementation of certain systems of equations and verification of obtained results with regard to the quality of utilization of the carrying capacity and freightage of the container. To solve the problem of the third and fourth versions of the developed mathematical models, implementation of the models ensures maximum utilization of technical parameters of the container due to the optimality criteria reflected in the corresponding objective functions. Therefore, verification of the obtained results with regard to the quality of utilization of carrying capacity and freightage of the container is not required.

Based on the proposed methodological provisions, experimental studies were carried out that have shown universality of solving problems of optimizing loading of consolidated containers.

The developed provisions are of scientific importance. They contribute to the development of a theory of transport processes and systems and are of practical interest for commercial departments of transport companies that provide cargo forwarding services. Introduction of these provisions will ensure an increase in efficiency of production activities of representatives of the transport business and will also enable formation of rational systems of cargo forwarding services for cargoes in regional, interregional and international transportation.
