When solving the problem, 2 optimization criteria are possible: minimization of the average cost of supply or minimization of the total idle time of vehicles.
These criteria are conflicting, therefore the System optimizes the average cost of deliveries taking into account the cost of renting vehicles.
When solving the problem, the System accounts for:
- constraints on the minimum number of vehicles for deliveries;
- constraints on the maximum number of vehicles simultaneously accepted by the shipper and the sequence, in which they are arriving
- supplier ratings;
- the varying density of raw wood from different suppliers in different regions
