This work does not aim at presenting a new solution for creation of deliveries routes, because many solutions tackled this Compound 56 issue. Among the proposals for creation of routes, we highlight (Cao et al., 2014, Diao and Heching, 2011 and Jiang et al., 2014), which obtained optimal solutions and with low computational costs. These algorithms calculate the best route to be done by the vehicle, disposing of information such as weight and volume supported by the vehicle, pickup and delivery spot of the set, time-window, and weight and volume of the set.
The logistics planner can automatically create delivery routes or plan them manually by the Website Monitoring and Management. With the automatic creation, the website requests the SafeTrack Server to delegate the task to the module Delivery Optimizer. Then the Delivery Optimizer requests to the database the necessary information for the route creation, and calculates and returns to the website the route to be traveled.
The Delivery Optimizer can also be executed in an ongoing travel, aiming to check if there is another set lungfish can be delivered on the planned route. When a Carrier Station enters in a Depot Station to pick up or to deliver, the Depot Station always makes a call to the SafeTrack Server that delegates to the Delivery Optimizer the task of checking if the database has a new set that can be delivered by a vehicle on its planned route, also considering its limitations of weight and volume. If exists, the SafeTrack Server returns to the Depot Station the set’s code. With that, the operator of the Depot Station and the driver can confirm if the attribution of the set is viable.
