Abstract

This paper considers a single container loading problem with practical constraints that address the U.S. legal requirements stipulated in the California Vehicle Code (CVC) related to truck axle weight. The problem is computationally intractable for practical problem cases. We propose an integrated heuristic solution approach that combines a GRASP wall-building algorithm with linear integer programming models. Experiments are conducted using data generated from real cases showing the effectiveness of our approach. This work has been developed into a software component to facilitate decision makers in the industry. © 2013 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
