Mathematical modeling is widely used in studies of operational planning in railway transport. Mainly heuristic algorithms and simulation modeling is used in short-term planning at marshalling yards. There is an opportunity to improve the quality of planning using strict optimization models. The objective of the study was to find a way to optimize the multi-terminal transport flows of the complex structure by the example of operational planning for handling car flows at the marshalling yard. The process model was built on the basis of Mixed Integer Linear Program (MILP) method. The article provides the mathematical setting and describes results of calculations of the reference example. The LpSolve application package was used. The technological effect is estimated through checking the optimal solution on the simulation model.
