[Both, reductions of costs as well as emissions are driving shipping companiesto operate their fleet in slow steaming mode. In this thesis a strategic linershipping network design decision support system is presented, which takesthree environmental influences into account: waves, ocean currents...
[The aim of this chapter is to introduce the reader to maritime transportation. In the following a short overview on numbers and figures of world trade, oceangoing transportation and especially container ship transportation, which isthe focus of this thesis, is given.]
[Ships are affected by a multitude of environmental influences such as: tides,currents, waves and winds. The choice of a shortest route or path in terms ofe.g. costs, fuel or time between two consecutive harbours or any coordinatesand considering environmental influences for this shortest route,...
[In this chapter the reader is introduced to the main issue of this thesis: The liner shipping network design which determines the number of ships needed of a specific type to perform round trips and transporting as many cargo as profitable under the assumption of a given fleet of ships. The...
[The liner network design model and the Matheuristic used as solving algorithm presented in Chapter 4 will be tested on computational performance in the following. Furthermore, we will show adoptions to the liner network design according to seasons and environmental influences. In addition the...
[In this thesis a liner shipping network design is presented, which is for the first time capable of taking weather data such as wind and waves as well as currents into consideration. Additionally this model allows different speed settings between two consecutive harbours instead of an average...
