dc.description.abstractTruck routing and scheduling problems are differentiated from other vehicle routing and scheduling problems and a classification scheme for the former ones is outlined. Many characteristics of practical truck routing and scheduling problems are listed and several aspects are discussed, among them are: soft constraints, demand variability, multiple objectives, complex cost functions, and alternate solution approaches and their potential for solving practical problems. It is suggested that cost-based interactive heuristics coupled with graphical presentation of solutions may be the right method to deal with the more complex practical problems. Some basic generic heuristics are suggested and important software design and acquisition considerations are presented. Keywords: Vehicle routing, vehicle scheduling; man-machine systemsen_US
