Abstract

A large part of many logistics systems involves the management of a fleet of vehicles used to serve warehouses, retailers and/or customers. In order to control the costs of operating the fleet, a dispatcher must continuously make decisions on how much to load on each vehicle and where to send it. These types of problems fall under the general class of Vehicle Routing Problems mentioned in Chapter 1.
