This project explored the use of a variety of different transportation relationships between shippers and carriers to improve overall performance.  Specifically, working with several different retailers and manufacturers, developed an approach for determining the optimal assignment of for-hire and private fleet assets across a freight transportation network while considering the uncertainty of demand for truckloads.
