Motivated by a planned automated cargo transportation network, we consider transportation problems in which the finite capacity of resources (such as vehicles, docks, parking places) has to be taken into account. For such problems, it is often even difficult to construct a good feasible solution. We present a flexible modeling methodology which allows to construct, evaluate, and improve feasible solutions. This new modeling approach is evaluated on instances stemming from a simulation model of the planned cargo transportation system.
