Based on “One Belt and One Road”, this paper studies
the path selection of multimodal transport by using the method of
multi-objective mixed integer programming. Therefore, this paper studies the
factors of transportation time, transportation cost and transportation safety
performance, and establishes a mathematical model. In addition, the method of
multi-objective mixed integer programming is used to comprehensively consider
the different emphasis and differences of customers on cargo transportation.
Then we use planning tools of Microsoft Excel to solve path selection and to
determine whether the chosen path is economical and reliable. Finally, a
relatively complex road network is built as an example to verify the accuracy
of this planning method.
