In this tutorial we will use the Capacitated transportation optimization experiment to optimize the cost of delivering products from DC to Lidl stores in Bulgaria. We will create routes comprising succession of customers that will be visited by our vehicle in a certain order. The experiment duration is 56 days, which can be divided into equal periods of time in case of multiple shipments.
To create cost-efficient routes the experiment will consider the following data:
- Demand of a customer
- Capacity of the vehicle type
- Number of shipment within the simulation period
- Paths that are available for this or that shipment
