This document details a project in which two types of vehicles
were analysed and compared using the Analytical Hierarchy
Process, to select the best vehicle for G4S Cash Solutions
Cash-In-Transit operations based on operating costs and performance.
The project also optimized the vehicle route schedules at
G4S Cash Solutions Pretoria branch using a "Capacitated Vehicle
Routing Problem", based on the Clarke & Wright algorithm.
The report concludes that although the Lancet vehicle has better
performance and lower operating costs than a Hino when
compared in single units, the large capacity of the Hino make it
the superior choice when a fleet operates in built up areas such
as Pretoria compared to a fleet of Lancet vehicles. The Lancet
vehicle can however be used in rural areas where customer density
and demand are not limiting factors.
