Abstract

In this paper the comparisons of some solution approaches for vehicle routing are reported. The scenarios of vehicle routing with static travel costs, pseudodynamic travel costs, dynamic travel costs are considered. Some characteristics of link costs are discussed. For each scenario the changes in vehicle routing (i.e. path search) are highlighted; a test application for freight distribution in city logistic is done. The goal is to verify how the cost variation in the time influences the route optimization. Keywords: link cost functions genetic algorithm optimization models.
