Intermodal transportation within the green supply chain: an approach based on ELECTRE method

Abstract

Considering the great environmental awakenings at the planetary level and the discounted growth of the carriage of goods per transportation mode in the world, the distribution and haulage companies must start to take measures to limit their impacts. The goal of this paper is to model the performance of an intermodal transportation system within the green supply chain, taking into account the economic, environmental and societal criteria in order to help decision-makers in choosing the path with the best compromised benefit/impacts in an intermodal transportation system. We have to trade with many conflicting criteria, it is thus appropriate to use multicriteria decision support system to find the best compromised solution. The path selection in a multimodal transportation network is therefore a multicriteria decision-making problem. In this paper, we will use an approach based on the elimination and choice expressing the reality (ELECTRE) method to solve our multicriteria model.
