Vehicle Routing Problem

Least Cost Routing Algorithms

MJC²'s route optimization algorithms are amongst the fastest on the market and have the flexibility to take into account a wide range of rules and constraints such as those listed below. In addition we are able to provide configured or tailored solutions which consider other aspects of the route when optimizing. Our vehicle routing tools model operational rules and constraints such as:

  • Vehicle routing planning with one-way streets, restricted junctions, etc.
  • Varying speeds by road type and time of day
  • Trip routing vehicles to avoid toll roads and toll bridges (least cost routing)
  • Night time/weekend lorry routing controls (e.g. the London 'Brown' routes)
  • Weight & height restrictions (e.g. for truck routing)
  • Fleet routing scheduling taking account of congestion charges
  • Vehicle routing costs per mile/km and per hour
  • Weight related vehicle routing costs
  • Loading & unloading times and constraints
  • Altitude related truck routing costs (e.g. trip routing to reduce hill climbing while loaded)

Route Optimization

MJC²'s vehicle routing software solutions are designed to address large, complex vehicle routing problems for which it is necessary to adopt an integrated approach to planning and scheduling to achieve real savings. Our logistics routing systems include the following routing algorithms & route optimization capabilities:

  • Trip routing, scheduling and optimization based on customisable criteria and constraints
  • Driver scheduling taking account of required breaks and WTD (Working Time Directive)
  • Integrated optimization of depot/warehouse activity
  • Mapping: routes, manufacturing & distribution centres, delivery & collection points, etc.
  • Integrated journey planner software and truck routing maps
  • Reporting, vehicle performance monitoring, driver performance monitoring
  • Route management software tools and exception reporting
  • Generation of time/distance matrices based on route optimization
  • Geographic cost-profiling and strategic transportation routing
