  • Title: BIlevel Problems in LOgistics and Security

  • International Partner (Institution - Laboratory - Researcher):

    • Universidad de Chile (Chile) - Instituto Sistemas Complejos de Ingeieria (ISCI) - Ordonez Fernando

  • Start year: 2017

  • See also: https://project.inria.fr/biplos/

  • This projet is devoted to bilevel optimisation problems with application in the security and logistics domains. Stackelberg games, including one defender and several followers, and competitive location problems will be considered. Mixed integer linear optimisation models and efficient algorithms to solve them will be developed.

  • Title: Physical-internet services for city logistics

  • International Partner (Institution - Laboratory - Researcher):

    • Norwegian School of Economics - Stein Wallace

  • Start year: 2017

  • In this project, we consider an urban logistic terminal and new logistics services which could be developed according to a Physical Internet approach. The main objective is to evaluate the services using optimization models created within the project. We are developing optimization models to identify win-win cooperation between carriers based on supply and demand. We aim to explore how to include stochasticity in the description of the supplies and demands, as well as travel times, and to what extent the plans within a day can improve by such knowledge. The second task is to develop solution algorithms for these models. These are real scientific challenges as we are facing stochastic mixed integer problems.
