A GENERALIZED MATHEMATICAL MODEL OF OPTIMIZING INTERMODAL SUPPLY SYSTEM OF EXPORT CITRUS FRUITS TO INTERNATIONAL MARKETS
The citrus fruits export supply system is a complex micro-logistics international transport logistical system. It pertains to intermodal transport supply chain of exported products. The central link in the chain is a regional agricultural logistic center, where the products are processing and preparing for shipping. The agricultural center is distinguished by a multitude of possible ties with suppliers and buyers, and as far as possible it is located in their geographic center.
The goal of the logistic system as a complex structure, is to create an optimally functioning logistic system and develop a scientific- technical methodology of development on the basis of principles of intermodality, international marketing and supply chain management in the conditions of an indeterminate impact of external factors.. In accordance with the developed optimization procedures, there have been optimized the parameters and and selected the values of studying parameters at a level of probability belief.
