The design of transportation networks: a multi objective model combining equity, efficiency and efficacy

pdf-format:


Abstract

A network design problem consists in locating facilities (nodes and arcs) that enable the transfer of flows (passengers and/or goods) from given origin-destination pairs. The topic can have several applications within transportation and logistics contexts. In this work we propose a multi-objective model in which balancing or equity aspects, i.e. measures of the distribution of distances of users from the path, are considered. These kinds of models can be used when there is the need to balance risks or benefits among all the potential users deriving from the location of the path to be designed. The application of the proposed model to a benchmark problem used in the literature to test these kinds of models, shows that it is able to find solutions characterized by significant level of equity but also of efficiency and efficacy.
