Title
(EN) Method and system for developing optimized schedules
Abstract
(EN)
In accordance with the present invention a process is provided for optimizing a schedule of legs employed in transporting objects between geographic markets. The process identifies a set of itineraries (112) for serving a set of markets, and then generates a set of market plans (122) for each market. Each market plan comprises a modified set of the itineraries for the market. The profitability of each market plan is then determined (142), and a selection is made from the set of market plans (144) of a subset thereof that optimizes overall profit of the schedule.
