The current drive to reduce packaging waste has led many companies to consider the use of multi-trip containers or shippers in which to transport their products in order to reduce packaging waste. The efficiency of such systems obviously depends on selecting shipper dimensions in such a way as to ensure high volumetric utilisation. As is the case with many practical problems the efficiency/solution quality can be improved if problem specific information is used to enhance the operation of a… CONTINUE READING
