The paper deals with delivery and vehicle unloading time importance for local distribution problems within practicable conditions. It is necessary to optimize both vehicle’s driving time and unloading time to organize local circular route in optimal way.

The paper’s author recommends registering vehicle unloading time for the each object within the particular route. It is also recommended to divide all roads into small sections. After that it is easy to define driving time for each section in particular hours.
