Decision Support System to Improve Delivery of Large and Heavy Goods by Road Transport

Conference paper
Part of the Advances in Intelligent Systems and Computing book series (AISC, volume 844)


The paper is devoted to special features of the large and heavy goods (oversized and overweight loads) transportation by road transport. To organize a delivery of large and heavy goods, two main problems have to be solved: selection of the optimal road vehicle as well as selection of the best route. Since there are a lot of factors have to be considered, it is necessary to use information and communication technologies. The concept of Decision Support System (DSS) together its modules’ interaction is presented. Software complexes, which are based on the developed algorithm to distribute the vehicle fleet units to the suitable orders, and the set of models, which allow predicting consequences of the proposed solutions, are the intelligent heart of our DSS.
