Trailer Routing Problem

Satisfactory Essays

Truck and Trailer Routing Problem (TTRP) is a special case of Vehicle Routing Problem (VRP), whose goal is to minimize the length of a given route with specific drop points using the vehicle’s capacity as much as possible. It is more beneficial over the classic VRP because of the attachment of a detachable trailer, which means extra capacity, behind the truck. Nothing comes without a price. Neither all the customers or drop points can be visited by a truck carrying a trailer, nor can a trailer be parked at all customers’ parking lot. While visiting such customers, where only trucks can enter, the trailer must be parked somewhere safe and if possible be emptied before head. This thesis describes different types of TTRP and ways to solve them.
