Abstract: Many motor carriers must generate tours for their vehicles without full knowledge about actual transportation demand. Often, new transportation demand is requested after vehicles have begun their tours and the motor carrier must dynamically modify tours in order to consider new transportation requests. Such dynamic changes can have a significant impact on tour length, emissions, costs, and profitability. This paper seeks to quantify the impact of dynamics on motor carrier performance. For this, the decision making process of motor carriers is simulated based on scenarios with different levels of dynamism to compare the resulting profitability. Simulation experiments indicate that motor carrier performance can be significantly increased if advance demand notification times are increased from below ten hours to above twelve hours. It appears that driver’s working hour regulations as imposed by European Union legislation have a particular impact on this jump in profitability.
