Abstract

A model is presented that shippers, carriers and policy-makers can use to analyze routing problems for hazardous materials or routing-and-siting problems for wastes. Unlike many other models, which focus on either the network or planar aspects of the problem, this one focuses on both. It ties the transportation costs to the network elements while the risk impacts relate to the zones. Routing and siting decisions produce impacts that accumulate, overlap and interact at the zonal level.
