  1. Project Title Project # University Logo Sponsor Logo Project Team Principal Investigator name Co-Principal Investigator name (s) Graduate Assistant name (s) Undergraduate Assistant name (s) Expected Results (Easy to understand description of the key results – words or pictures.) • Provides DC manager with information on LTL loads to consolidate for TL shipment • Only creates loads that TL carriers will accept • Deliveries meet customer requirements • Interfaces with order entry system so no manual data entry required Motivation (Problem that motivated the research – words or pictures.) Transportation costs for frequent deliveries from a DC to customers can be dramatically reduced by optimized mode selection and load consolidation. Some Details (… not just a bunch of equations) • Tool runs in Excel • Algorithm-based for good but not necessarily optimal solutions • Includes customer constraints • Days and time of day deliveries can be made • Includes constraints of TL carriers • No more than 2 stops • Stops < 50 miles apart • Interfaces with order entry system so data automatically collected Broader Applicability (Where the results can the be used; keys to adapting) • Can be used if multiple shipments are sent LTL or parcel each day from a single location • Requires distances between all customers be determined and an input file created • Model must be given the order information
