Abstract
This paper defines some compact expressions to evaluate the average distance traveled in VRP problems in circular and elliptic zones. These formulas have been carried out empirically from the results obtained by the application to a set of problems of heuristic algorithms (Clarke & Wright, Fisher & Jaikumar and Gillet & Miller) and Daganzo’s method based on continuous approximations of the demand spatial distribution. The problems are solved and designed automatically by a computer. Vehicle ca...
