Supply Chain Management


Combi Terminal Twente B.V. (CTT) is a terminal operator that transports containers from the Port of Rotterdam via Hengelo to the customer and vice versa. The majority of containers that are shipped between Rotterdam and Hengelo are transported by inland barges. The number of transportations are growing and barge planners have to deal with large amounts of data when making plans. A barge planner at CTT makes different decisions at different moments in the planning process of a barge. Currently, these decisions are based on experience and common sense. Planners do not make use of any structural decision support. In order to profit from the growth in transportation, CTT wants to optimize the use of their transportation means and increase the quality of transportation.
