Truck and trailer routing and similar problems are characteristic of the transportation and logistics industry, where – in order to reduce overall fuel consumption – it is necessary to create transport plans by determining the shortest routes for a fleet responsible for the supply chain or distribution of products.
The engine developed in the project will automatically generate transport plans, while taking into account constraints such as time windows, multiple depots, trucks and trailers capacity, or transhipment points.
Results of the project will be used in further development of the BetterSolutions technologies to support transportation management and logistics. The routing engine will be implemented in MuuMap and BetterMap products.
Funding: National Centre for Research and Development, Applied Research Programme (2015-2016)
The project is carried out in partnership with the Gdansk University of Technology.
