Abstract—The paper presents the problem of transportation service optimization with heterogeneous customers demand and external transportation costs. Main attention is paid to the external transport costs generated by road transport and to the problem of certain goods groups transport on the same vehicle. Optimization task with the criteria of transportation costs minimization was formulated. To solve the problem authors used the clustering procedure and genetic algorithm. Computational results were obtained with the usage of authors' computer application.

Index Terms—vehicle routing problem, genetic algorithm, clustering, external transportation costs, heterogeneous demand
