routes of calves to slaughterhouses by means of a GIS
(geographical information system) route planning
and time limitation software for the fl eet management
in transportation industry was performed. As
basic data the farms (last locations of the calves) and
the slaughterhouses were available in each case with
addresses and coordinates. 150 data records from 258
veal calves could be evaluated. None of the calves was
transported longer than 6 hours. Therefore, in all cases
the Swiss law for animal protection was obeyed concerning
maximum length of transportation time. In
the road model, 82% of calves were transported too
