ExxonMobil has developed applied research and solutions methods for a number of years in the area of maritime inventory routing and recently a focus on the liquefied natural gas (LNG) business. In this presentation, the applied research approach to LNG inventory routing will be discussed along with the evolution of improvements and exploration of alternative ideas. Topics discussed will include the model development, heuristic solution approach, improvements to those heuristics, and experimentation with parallelization as well as briefly touching upon Constraint Programming.
