RÉSUMÉ : We consider the problem of partitioning a set of customers into districts such that all customers within a district are serviced by exactly one vehicle. The allocation of customers to districts is constant over time. An advantage of this is increased performance by the drivers, since they get acquainted with a district. When the districts, or routing zones, are defined, the actual demand is observed, and a travel plan must be produced within each district. In this work, we propose a heuristic solution method for solving the outlined problem. Some experimental results will also be given.
