Abstract:Non-recurrent disturbances substantially impact the timeliness of home deliveries. Where recurrent disruptions are predictable and can therefore be incorporated in offline route plans, the en-route adaptation of route plans is required to reduce the impact of non-recurrent disturbances. In this paper, an online re-planning method is developed and evaluated in order to reduce the impact of non-recurrent traffic disturbance. The method is based on two strategies: inter-route switching of customers and the transfer of customers to other vehicles. Results are obtained using an evaluation method that schedules random recurrent congestion and non-recurrent disturbances and compared to an offline solution method.
