Computer program, Report 99.3.LT.5182, Transport Technology, Logistic Engineering.

This report describes the development of a computer model of a package delivery service.

The topic of this report is the assignment of orders for the transportation of goods to trucks with the objective to use as little trucks as necessary to transport as many orders as possible while respecting certain constraints. Three assignment methods are presented.

The simulations that are made with the computer model show that the method that assigns orders to the trucks dynamically gives the best result.
