Truckload routing has always been a challenge. The truckload routing problem (TRP) itself is hard, but the complexity of solving the problem increases due to the stochastic nature of truckload demand. It is traditionally approached through the use of single objective solution methodologies which range from linear programming to dynamic programming techniques. This paper presents a deterministic multiple objective formulation of the TRP which paves the way for a solution approach utilizing goal programming and taboo search techniques. Future work including the inclusion of stochastic demand is also discussed.
