### Transportation and Integer Programming

Martin Groetschel

ZIB, Berlin

Transportation problems occuring in practice (such as: public mass transport
by bus, train, or plane (including driver assignment and vehicle circulation),
dial-a-ride, track routing, scheduling of service vehicles, logistics, ...)
are much more complex tasks than what is usually called a "transportation
problem" in the mathematical programming terminology.

In this talk I will present an overview of some of the problems of this type
that have been attacked using integer programming techniques by the transportation
research group at Konrad-Zuse-Zentrum. I will present solutions of very large
scale instances from practice and indicate the savings that can result from
the use of advanced mathematical solution technology.
