Below is the format of the definitions of the ITP instances (.itp) of the Integrated Operational Transportation Planning Problem. These instances are generated and solved in Wang, Xin; Kopfer, Herbert; Gendreau, Michel: Operational Transportation Planning of Freight Forwarding Companies in Horizontal Coalitions, Chair of Logistics Working Paper No. 5, University of Bremen, 2013. The ITP files (.itp) can be opened and edited by any program which can be used for text files (.txt).
