Abstract: A decision support model for service network design in intermodal barge transportation is presented. The model determines optimal shipping routes for roundtrip services between a major sea port and several hinterland ports. The model decides on the hinterland ports to be visited and which transport demand should be ful lled in order to maximize pro t. Empty container repositioning movements are taken into account. A case study on the hinterland network of the port of Antwerp in Belgium is discussed. Numerical experiments are presented to show how the model can be used to identify the appropriate vessel size and service frequency.
