Multi-hop Cellular Networks using mobile relays require efficient multi-hop networking protocols that provide a high end-to-end performance and reduce the terminal's energy consumption. This paper proposes a set of novel multi-hop routing protocols that exploit the location of the destination node to reduce their network signaling and overall energy consumption. These two aspects are crucial factors to progress towards the future implementation of Multi-hop Cellular Networks based on mobile relays. Future 4G cellular systems are required to provide high and homogeneous bit rates over the complete cell coverage area.
