Project information

Railway freight wagons have a significant share in the total capital assets of a railway freight company. Due to this fact, the main objective of every company is to maximize the utilization of these resources and on that way minimize its size. In this project a decomposition approach for optimization of the heterogeneous fleet of flat wagons is applied. The approach has three optimization modules: optimal container to wagon assignment, empty wagon repositioning and optimal wagon fleet sizing. In order to enable practical usability of proposed approach, a desktop client application RFWFOptimizer” is developed.
