1 Institute of Production and Logistics – University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences, Vienna Working group Transportation Logistics (Institute of Production and Logistics) Patrick Hirsch Institute of Production and Logistics University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences, Vienna

2 Institute of Production and Logistics – University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences, Vienna University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences (BOKU), Vienna  founded in 1872  about 11,000 students and 1,500 researchers  based on the “three columns”: natural, technical, and socio-economic sciences  Studies:  Environment and resources management  Agriculture  Forestry  Wood and Fibre technology  Food science and Biotechnology 

3 Institute of Production and Logistics – University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences, Vienna Institute of Production and Logistics  founded in 2003  17 researchers  Head: Manfred Gronalt (Vice Head: Patrick Hirsch)  Three working groups  Peter Rauch: Logistics in Forestry - biomass supply chains, bioenergy, risk in forestry, etc.  Manfred Gronalt: Production logistics in the wood processing industry, risk analysis of supply chains, optimization of container terminals and goods traffic networks, etc.  Patrick Hirsch: Transportation logistics and disaster management

4 Institute of Production and Logistics – University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences, Vienna Transportation logistics and disaster management - Intro  since 2008  4 PhD students, one Senior Lecturer & me  Backgrounds: Andrea Trautsamwieser (Mathematician), Magdalena Schweiger (Environmental Management and Agricultural Economics), Klaus-Dieter Rest (Management Science), Marco Oberscheider (Environmental Management & Informatics), and Christian Fikar (Business Administration)

5 Institute of Production and Logistics – University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences, Vienna Transportation logistics and disaster management – Research 1  Transportation logistics in health care  Home health care scheduling with a daily horizon (rich VRP)  Transport by car  In disaster situations (e.g. fluvial floods)  Use of multimodal transport  Alternative modes of transport and their combination  Methods: metaheuristics (VNS, Tabu Search), exact approaches (Branch & Price)  Home health care scheduling with a weekly horizon (rich VRP)  Transport by car  Methods: metaheuristics (VNS), exact approaches (Branch & Price)  Patient transportation (DARP with additional constraints)  Methods: matheuristics (combination of exact approaches with Tabu Search)

6 Institute of Production and Logistics – University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences, Vienna Transportation logistics and disaster management – Research 2  Transportation logistics in forestry  Round timber transport with log-trucks (rich VRP also denoted sometimes as TTVRP)  Minimization of driving times or CO 2 e emissions  Methods: matheuristics and metaheuristics (Tabu Search)  Round timber transport with containers (state-dependent VRP)  Method: Metaheuristics (Tabu Search)

8 Institute of Production and Logistics – University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences, Vienna Transportation logistics and disaster management – Transfer to practice Many unsolved problems in organizations that cannot be handled with standard-software → Spin-Off of our institute to bring research into practice Still a lot of research work and real-life problems in home health care, patient transportation, wood transport... – interest to work on “odd” problems with real-life applications
