    Abstract

    We present a modeling approach for optimizing intermodal trains schedules based on an infrastructure divided into time-dependent train paths. The formulation can be generalized to a capacitated multi commodity network design model with additional design balance constraints. We present a Tabu Search based metaheuristic to solve large instances of the generalized problem and compare its results on standard network design problems to those obtained using the solver XpressMP.
