about

Modern freight forwarding companies attempt to cooperate with each other to increase their efficiency. Xin Wang studies the new operational transportation planning problems that arise in the context of cooperation in both static and dynamic scenarios. To achieve the cost-savings embedded in cooperation, novel planning approaches that can help forwarders obtaining high-quality solutions are proposed. Computational studies show considerable benefits that can be achieved through cooperation.
Dr. Xin Wang wrote his dissertation under the supervision of Prof. Dr.-Ing. Herbert Kopfer at the Chair of Logistics at the University of Bremen.
