Abstract [en]

To be competitive with other modes of transport, the railway needs to be cost-effective. In order to become more competitive in the logistics industry, Indian Railways has taken new initiative to improve their operations in recent years. A rail-truck intermodal transportation service for Indian Railways is described in this paper. The main focus of the present research is to optimize the freight rate and terminal location together, in order to minimize the total shipping cost of truckers while ensuring the targeted profit of the railway. A model has been developed for the determination of the optimal freight rate and the corresponding intermodal terminal location. The key regulators of this model are the price sensitivity of the trucker and profit guarantee for railways. A case study was developed on the Delhi - Mumbai freight corridor. An analysis was performed to gain insight into the trade-offs among shipment cost and terminal locations.
