CND Tool

The online tool serves as an instrument for optimal routing of a barge container ship on an inland waterway. It is based on the MILP model and aims to maximize the profit of the shipping company, while, at the same time, defining upstream and downstream calling sequence and number of loaded and empty containers transported between any two ports. 

The tool aims to facilitate decision-making processes at the strategic planning level, which relate to the establishment of a container barge network on the Danube River. The approach is based on the development of a mathematical programming model that can be applied to give recommendations about establishing a container liner service on any inland waterway.
