Wang, W.; Huang, L., and Zhang, X., 2018. Optimization of maritime emergency materials allocation based on network reliability. In: Liu, Z.L. and Mi, C.

A scientific allocation of maritime emergency materials is the groundwork for an early realization of maritime emergency logistics. This paper sets out to put forward a definition and measure approach for the network reliability of maritime emergency logistics in consideration of its connotation and influencing factors, and to build, with “minimum amount of goods in short” and “minimum transportation costs” as its goals, a multi-objective optimization model for maritime emergency materials allocation and put in use the planning means for solutions. Results from case-calculation with the help of LINDO software shows that the allocation plan generated by the multi-objective model can limit the network reliability of maritime emergency logistics within an acceptable scope under “minimum transportation costs” circumstances; therefore, it is more reasonable than the traditional approaches of material allocation.
