Perspective on practical aspects of truck routing and scheduling
by Naval Postgraduate School, Available from National Technical Information Service in Monterey, Calif, Springfield, Va
Written in English
Truck routing and scheduling problems are differentiated from other vehicle routing and scheduling problems and a classification scheme for the former ones is outlined. Many characteristics of practical truck routing and scheduling problems are listed and several aspects are discussed, among them are: soft constraints, demand variability, multiple objectives, complex cost functions, and alternate solution approaches and their potential for solving practical problems. It is suggested that cost-based interactive heuristics coupled with graphical presentation of solutions may be the right method to deal with the more complex practical problems. Some basic generic heuristics are suggested and important software design and acquisition considerations are presented. Keywords: Vehicle routing, vehicle scheduling; man-machine systems.

Understanding how ‘route optimization’ differs from the processes of routing and scheduling has allowed our customers to significantly reduce their fuel bills and unlock savings of 10 – 30%. In addition to cutting their costs, Truckstops . Network Routing: Algorithms, Protocols, and Architectures, Second Edition, explores network routing and how it can be broadly categorized into Internet routing, circuit-switched routing, and telecommunication transport network routing. The book systematically considers these routing paradigms, as well as their interoperability, discussing how algorithms, protocols, analysis, and operational deployment impact these approaches and addressing both macro-state and micro-state in by:
The successful implementation of vehicle routing software has been aided by the exponential growth in computing power since , the emergence of accurate and sophisticated geographic information systems (GIS) technology, and easy-to-use interface software that enables the customer to integrate routing .

In this paper a new approach for designing a truck appointment system (TAS) at container terminals is proposed. While the vast majority of published research analyzes the TAS from the perspective of drayage companies and terminal operations, in this work this topic is centered around truck Cited by: 1.

In particular, truck routing and scheduling problems in container drayage operation hav e also been studied. Imai et al. () formulated a container drayage problem as. The variants of the routing problems include convoy routing problem , inventory routing problem , school bus routing problem , truck and trailer routing problem , bus scheduling.
