Abstract: Explicit consideration of multiple objectives and uncertainty is important in hazardous materials transportation, particularly in regulating routes or making routing decisions. Application of a stochastic multiobjective routing method to hazardous materials transportation is described. A case study involving a hypothetical movement of nuclear waste illustrate the method and interpretation of the computational results.
