Abstract

Competitiveness of a supply chains depends significantly on distribution center operations because it determines responsiveness and timeliness of deliveries to customers. This paper proposes a control algorithm for routing multiple out-bound trucks to customers spread over a wide geographical area, each occupying different volume in a truck, and having a different delivery time-window. Overall operations are also constrained by geographical locations of the customers in various zones and dissimilar truck capacities. Performance of the algorithm is tested using data from a distribution center located in Latin America.
