DETERMINING THE OPTIMAL CAPACITY OF VEHICLES DEPENDING ON CARGO DISTRIBUTION SCHEMES IN THE LOGISTICS SYSTEM
AbstractThe article presents the results of simulation modeling of technological process of cargo transporting by delivery routes. The parameters of schemes of cargo distribution by delivery routes have been calculated. The efficiency evaluation of transport process was determined on the basis of the total transport costs, which are calculated based on the vehicles capacity, on the specific fuel consumption and on the number of cars. The regularity of the total cost change, depending on the vehicles capacity and the number of deliveries during the week have been identified. The optimal values of vehicles capacity for various schemes of cargo delivery in the logistics system have been determined. The dependence of the optimal capacity of the vehicle on the number of deliveries has been defined.
Keywords: cargo, capacity, vehicle, logistics system, route, total mileage, cargo turnover.
