    Network Design and Facility Location in Transportation

    • Bernard Gendron, Université de Montréal, CIRRELT

    In this talk, I will give an overview of the applications in transportation of network design and facility location models. In particular, I will present three research projects I am involved in that illustrate typical applications. The first one comes from the forest industry and concerns the location of logging camps for workers. The second one focuses on the location of vehicle inspection facilities, taking into account the allocation of patrols. The third one is a facility location problem for an express package delivery company.
