This paper describes a case study of the design and evaluation of a terminal based transportation system for groupage with a high customer service level, performed by Linjegods A.S. in Norway. The project has been supported by a tailor-made decision aid tool (TERMLOC) that provides the best location of terminals under time-restrictions with respect to lowest total cost for collection, traffic-lines, distribution and handling.
