The decisions in all these models include only the daily routing of the vehicles for realizing the collection and the delivery processes for the traffic to and from the next transshipment facility in a zone or a region. Synchronization with the long-distance operations is necessary (Rodrigue, 1999). This is typically achieved by deriving the earliest release dates and due dates for the collection or pickup operations from the departure or arrival times of the long haul services determined in the tactical context.

A homogeneous fleet of vehicles is available to serve requests from R. Each vehicle has a finite capacity Cmax. This capacity is low and hinders the consolidation of a larger number of requests into its route. Time windows associated with the pickup and delivery operations of the requests prohibit the successive execution of requests. It is not possible to realize the most profitable routes. For this reason, some requests have to be served by an LSP, although the charge to be paid exceeds the additional costs for the consideration of these requests into the routes of the carrier.

Every out-sourced request requires the payment of a freight charge that is transferred to the serving LSP. The freight charge for a particular request is calculated by means of the freight tariff function and depends upon the demanded transport relation and the quantity of goods to be moved. A similar problem is the subject of the PhD-Thesis of by Pankratz (2002). He extends the problem of Greb (1998) and solves a freight charge optimization problem for the outsourced requests. These requests are assigned to different LSPs.
