Other Titles: Optimization of a combined export coal transport network from the interior of Colombia
Otimização de uma rede de transporte combinado para a exportação do carvão do interior da Colômbia

Abstract: A combined transport network is studied with planning perspective in 2019, in order to identify optimal routes for transporting coal from centrally located sites within Colombia to export ports. Methodology based on the solution to minimum cost flow problem is used, including transport networks: road, river and railway, in a model composed of 34.000 km represented in 1.864 links. Both new rail and new export port infrastructure are included in the model. Model indicates centrally located coal within Colombia must be transported through the port of Barranquilla, using integration strategies, such as rail-river and road-river. The importance of the Magdalena River as strategic transport infrastructure is highlighted and three cargo transfer centers are identified near Barrancabermeja, Bocas del Carare and Capulco, which together could handle 18 million tons of coal per year.
Description: Se estudia una red de transporte combinado en Colombia, con horizonte en el año 2019, con el propósito de identificar las rutas óptimas del carbón desde los distritos de producción localizados en el interior del país hasta los puertos marítimos de exportación. La metodología utilizada se basa en la búsqueda de solución a un problema de flujo de mínimo costo que considera la red de transporte por carretera, la fluvial y ferroviaria, en un modelo que contiene 34.000 km de red representados en 1.864 arcos. El modelo considera nuevas infraestructuras ferroviarias y portuarias y sugiere que se deben transportar los carbones del interior del país por el puerto de Barranquilla mediante estrategias de integración ferroviaria-fluvial y carretera-fluvial. Se resalta la importancia del río Magdalena como infraestructura estratégica de transporte y se identifican tres centros de transferencia de carga localizados en Barrancabermeja, Bocas del Carare y Capulco, que en conjunto llegarían a manejar 18 millones de toneladas de carbón al año.
