Description

This study illustrates a method of scheduling pallet trucks using data obtained from pallet operations in Maine. The method, which is based upon a linear programming technique, can be employed in the determination of the minimum number of trucks required to handle a continuous flow of pulpwood in situations involving multi-pickup and multi-delivery points. In addition, the program establishes times and places of pulpwood pickup and delivery for each required truck.
