Executive Summary

In this paper, a real-time vehicle management system was proposed to plan and schedule vehicles' optimum routings using real-time information in logistics or distribution services. Three technologies were adopted for monitoring realtime situation and providing visualized interface, including radio frequency identification, geographical information system, and global positioning system. A real-time vehicle routing planning with time windows model and an insertion heuristic method were used to formulate vehicles' scheduling and search the relative optimal solution, respectively.
