Innovation in Transport and Logistics Through the Use

Session

Description

This research is concerned with the methodology of reducing shipping costs for the transport and logistics industry with particular emphasis on distribution services. Most operations for these services depend on vehicles, so keeping the cost of transport to a minimum will increase the profit margin. Each company has different requirements from customers for distribution of goods and their vehicles have different capacities available. The problem with this research is that in each of the routes, a vehicle starts at the warehouse with a certain amount of packages for distribution, then visits a subset of customers in order to deliver the packages.

Regardless of the time during a shift, a vehicle must always meet the capacity limitations of the vehicle. The Logistics system in this case study is used as an order collection and optimal vehicle delivery technique that has been further refined to suit customer requirements. The cost of transport is calculated for corresponding distances to compare the effect we get from this system.
