Abstract

The transportation of hazardous materials such as gasoline has unique features due to the nature of these type of materials and the importance role of these material in human life. Therefore, determining the routing of these materials is more challengeable than non-hazardous one due to more dangerous and risky condition besides the transportation costs. Since the distribution of gasoline take places in boarding (24 hours), logistics system should be able to meet these requirements in all of days. In this paper, a new model is developed for planning the route of vehicles as 7×24 (boarding) in order to minimizing the risk of hazardous materials. The proposed vehicle routing model in this paper has been attempted to consider minimization of transportation costs, reduce emissions due to gasoline distribution, consumption, diminishing the route’s risk and suggesting suitable time for servicing customers. The proposed model turns in to a single objective model using compromise programming and then solved by GAMS software using the data of case study and then its results have been reported.
