dc.description.abstractCities are witnessing a rapid growth in population and vehicles, causing greater traffic congestion on roads. Therefore, a need for a better transportation system to avoid this swelling congestion. In this research, we examine an emerging technology in freight and package delivery systems that will help reduce reliance on traditional ground transportation systems called Underground Pallet Tube System. The goal is to allow the distribution center located outside of city limits, to deliver pallets and packages to retail stores located inside the cities through an underground network of pipelines or tubes. We introduce an Underground Pallet Tube System model that generates a network design solution which minimizes construction cost while connecting to many of its customers located in the center of the city.eng
