dc.description.abstractThe importance of effective and efficient distribution is evident from its associated costs. Transportation and shipping alone comprise roughly 15 percent of a product's sales in the U.S. Physical distribution is very energy and labor intensive, which have both become relatively more expensive in the last 10-15 years. Not surprisingly, there is a growing demand for automated planning systems that produce economical routes. Other than the cost savings, introduction of these systems enables companies to maintain a higher level of service for their customers, it makes them less dependent on human planners, it supplies better management information facilities and it makes distribution planning work faster and simpler.
