Route Optimization for Delivery of Ready Mixed Concrete (RMC): A Literature Review
Ready mixed concrete industry requires a lot of optimization in today’s world and Route optimization is one of the
prime factors today. Generally, the plant owners have five to six owned trucks and in case of higher demands, they rent two
to three additional trucks. Some plant owners do not own a single RMC truck and rent all of them as may be necessary. But
because of increasing demand of RMC due to infrastructure growth and plant owners having limited number of trucks, route
optimization has become of prime importance and this work tries to focus upon the literature documentation of the studies
carried out till date.
