ABSTRACT:
This paper deals with the streamlining the collection (pick-up) and distribution (delivery) activities within the technology of wood industry. Through the optimization process implemented using the issue of the distribution task of linear programming, specifically the Mayer method, the particular solution in order to minimize the total costs in practice of utilized distribution routes is proposed. Initial part of the paper presents characteristics of the vehicle routing problem and describes methods of solving this issue. Subsequently, the main part of the paper outlines a particular case study in the context of the Mayer method application within a field of transport-technology solution of the material distribution.
