A Novel Approach to the Continuous Flow Truckload Routing Problem
Truckload routing has always been a challenge. This paper explores the development of continuous flow truckload routes, which resemble less than truckload routes, and a new way to formulate the truckload routing problem (TRP). Rather than view the problem as a succession of origin/destination pairs, we look at the problem as a series of routing triplets. This enables us to use alternate solution methods which may result in greater efficiency and improved solutions.
