Abstract

We solve an important problem for the liner shipping industry called the
Liner Shipping Fleet Repositioning Problem (LSFRP). The LSFRP poses a
large financial burden on liner shipping firms. During repositioning,
vessels are moved between services in a liner shipping network. Shippers
wish to reposition vessels as cheaply as possible without disrupting the
cargo flows of the network. The LSFRP is characterized by chains of
interacting activities with a multi-commodity flow over paths defined by
the activities chosen. Despite its great industrial importance, the LSFRP
has received little attention in the literature. We introduce a novel
mathematical model of the LSFRP with cargo flows based on a carefully
constructed graph and evaluate it on real world data from our industrial
collaborator.
