Free registration required

Executive Summary

The paper concerns the problem of routing and scheduling hazardous material (hazmat) in urban and suburban road networks. This problem involves conflicting objectives among interested parties: the shipping company, the client, the vehicle driver, the environment agency of the area, the population. In presence of conflicting interests, the use of a Decision Support System (DSS) is recommended. The paper outlines an ongoing work to develop a spatial multicriteria DSS based on a Geographical Information System (GIS) for hazmat transport in the city of Milan.
