This paper focuses on a generic model for service network design, which includes asset positioning and utilization through constraints on asset availability at terminals. We denote these relations as “design-balance constraints” and focus on the design-balanced capacitated multi-commodity network design model, a generalization of the capacitated multi-commodity network design model generally used in service network design applications. Both arc and cycle-based formulations for the new model are… CONTINUE READING
