Driver fatigue is internationally recognized as a significant factor in approximately 15%–20% of commercial road transport crashes. In their efforts to increase road safety and improve working conditions of truck drivers, governments worldwide are enforcing stricter limits on the amount of working and driving time without rest. This talk shows how hours of service regulations can be considered when optimising vehicle routes and schedules. It presents effective optimisation methods for minimising transportation costs and assesses the impact of different hours of service regulations on transportation costs and road safety.


Asvin Goel is Associate Professor of Supply Chain Management and Logistics at Kühne Logistics University and Adjunct Professor of Supply Chain Management at the Zaragoza Logistics Center in Spain.
