Abstract

The multi-modal freight transportation network plays a vital role in maintaining commodity flows across multiple industries and multiple regions. As such, the effects of large-scale disruptive events could result in the closure of key transportation nodes and links, causing disruptions in commodity flows and larger disruptions to industries requiring those commodities for economic productivity. This work integrates a multi-commodity network flow formulation with an economic interdependency model to quantify the multi-industry impacts of a disrupted transportation network to devise contingent rerouting plans to strengthen the network's adaptive capacity. The formulation proposed here is illustrated with a freight transportation planning case study in the state of Oklahoma, considering disruptive scenarios in which a network component is lost and how the proposed approach improves total economic productivity following a disruption.
