Abstract

The pallet is a loading unit with which a forklift can easily and quickly manipulate. One of the important services provided by the railways is transportation of freight in pallets. Loading pallets in railway wagons must satisfy numerous constraints related to: the order of packing both horizontally and vertically, the balanced load and characteristics of freight wagons (volume, carrying capacity, tare weight, length, number of axles, number of openings for loading, etc.). A number of constraints comes from the category of railway line by which the goods will be transported. The problem falls into the category of combinatorial optimization problems which is complex both for modeling and for solving due to the large number of constraints and numerous exceptions. In the paper, one model for the problem has been proposed. This paper also presents a few examples on which the proposed optimization model and its corresponding software have been tested.
