Abstract

The paper summarizes domestic and foreign researches about route optimization of multimodal transport. On this base, it first analysis the operational modes and influential factors for container sea-rail transport. Next, it puts China and Europe as the endpoints of route and analysis the alternative route from sea, rail and road these three kinds of transport. Then it builds time-cost model for container sea-rail transport. Wherein, the minimum total transport time and cost are both as objective function. In order to solve the double-objective route optimization model, the paper designs a multi-objective ant colony algorithm which accord with network characteristics of route with MATLAB. It also takes contradictions among the different sub-objectives into account and puts Pareto optimal solution set in it. Finally, it discusses a case study about the model.
