Abstract:

This describes the successful implementation of a novel routing system based on a new travelling salesman heuristic by the first two authors. The application called for the efficient daily routing of a varying number of vehicles to more than 200 delivery points whose locations change at a rate of about 14 each month. The system had to be easily maintained by one person and require no resources e.g., no computer. This system achieved all of these objectives, cost less than 50, and, moreover, shortened average travel times by 13 compared to previous performance. Author
