Title: Cargo Loading Problem: (A Case Study: Agate Transport and Services Ltd.)
Authors: Fosu, Solomon Kofi
Issue Date: 9-Jun-2012
Abstract: The main function of logistic companies is to load and transport cargo. Loading operations are often done arbitrary without due regard to weight and volume constraints of the vehicle. This thesis seeks to model loading operations at ATS limited, Tema as a linear programming problem so that profits could be maximized. This involves the use of simplex algorithm and application of QM software to analyse the data. The study revealed an optimal profit of Gh₵ 12140.00 was made. It also established an optimal loading plan in each of the three compartments of the vehicle used. Among other recommendations offered was that computer applications give a systematic and transparent solutions as compared to arbitrary method.
