|Mentor:||Wanpracha Art Chaovalitwongse,Rutgers University|
Marine logistics has a near monopoly on transportation of large volumes of goods between continents. Although routing pronblems have extensively studied, very little of that research is devoted to marine transportation problems.
We aim to develop a complete mathematical programming formulation for the routing, transportation, scheduling and inventory management of a single bulk product (in our case, crude oil) with a production and demand profile that changes daily.
