Abstract
(EN)
System and method for planning transportation shipments for delivery and pickup of goods. The system may plan shipments based on such factors as requested goods to be picked up and delivered, while minimizing the cost of the shipments planned. Constraints can be placed on the transportation resources and the goods to be moved that will restrict the possible shipments considered by the planning method. The method may be capable of considering all possible locations through which goods can be moved by shipments. The method may also be capable of quickly solving problems with a large number of potentially varying goods to be transported.

L'invention concerne un système et un procédé destinés à la planification des envois pour la livraison et la remise de marchandises à un destinataire. Le système peut planifier des envois sur la base de certains facteurs, tels que les marchandises demandées à remettre et à livrer, tout en réduisant au minimum les coûts associés à l'envoi prévu. Des limitations peuvent être mises sur les ressources de transport et les marchandises à acheminer. Ces limitations vont restreindre les envois possibles considérés par le procédé de planification. Le procédé peut prendre en considération tous les emplacements possibles par lesquels les marchandises peuvent passer lors de l'envoi. Le procédé peut également résoudre rapidement les problèmes avec un grand nombre de marchandises diverses à transporter.
