Picture of Eunsu LeeA paper written by students and staff at NDSU was published in the March 2014 issue of Maritime Economics & Logistics.

The article, "A coupled linear programming model with geospatial dynamic trip assignment for global-scale intermodal transportation," shows development of a geospatial origin-destination model that determines and optimizes large-scale container flows from U.S. trade partners to inland markets within the lower 48 states. The model helps identify alternative routes for global supply chains.

The paper was written by EunSu Lee, research associate at the Upper Great Plains Transportation Institute; Peter G. Oduor, associate professor in the Department of Geosciences; Kambiz Farahmand, professor in the Department of Industrial & Manufacturing Engineering; and Denver Tolliver, director of the Upper Great Plains Transportation Institute.
