Locomotive and Wagon Scheduling in Freight Transport

Abstract

We present a new model for a strategic locomotive scheduling problem
arising at the Deutsche Bahn AG. The model is based on a
multi-commodity min-cost flow formulation that is also used for
public bus scheduling problems. However, several new aspects have to
be additionally taken into account, such as cyclic departures of the
trains, time windows on starting and arrival times, network-load
dependend travel times, and a transfer of wagons between trains. The
model is formulated as an integer programming problem, and solutions
are obtained using commercial standard software. Computational
results for several test instances are presented.
