Hazardous materials (Hazmat), which can cause damage to the living creatures and the environment due to their chemical or physical characteristics, have been used in many sectors in recent years so the importance of transportation of hazardous materials is on the rise. Despite the fact that railway transportation is superior in terms of risk and cost, the highway is widely used for transportation of hazardous materials. In this study, which focuses on the transportation of fuel constitutes a significant part of the transportation of hazardous materials, we propose a bi-objective transportation model for routing rail-truck intermodal shipments. The model aims at minimizing the total transportation cost and total transportation risk between supply and demand points.
