About this book

Dynamic Fleet Management will focus on real time management of a distribution system. This means that when a dynamic event occurs within the distribution chain, action must be taken in "real-time." The book will integrate the latest results in system design, algorithm development and system implementation, to capture the state-of-the art research and application trends. While much of the research in this area of transportation problems have almost exclusively concentrated on carrying out static plans on optional distribution conditions, this book will examine those problems when some dynamic or unplanned even occurs within the transport or network system. It will focus specifically on these cases and integrate the latest results in systems, routing algorithms and case studies where information (a dynamic event) is revealed to the decision maker in a real-time manner.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“It is an edited collection of many different papers, all dealing with interesting problems connected with the management of vehicles in a dynamic environment. … it is quite an interesting book, especially for those who are not experts in the field: it gives a broad overview of models, and methods, and opens the mind to many research directions.” (F. Schoen, Journal of the Operational Research Society, Vol. 61 (11), 2010)
