The objective of this research is to study and solve the problem of transportation route management by a heuristic method. From studying the working process before improvement, the transportation company works with random truck routes, which is compared to last month`s route reference. The results show that the company`s original work resulted in an average goods volume of only 21.69 cubic meters on a truck, with a total distance of 13,680 kilometers. This research has adopted the Nearest Neighbor Approach and Evolutionary functions in Excel Solver. From the routing results, it was found that Evolutionary methods provide better results than the closest neighbor methods. When compared to the original data of the company, the total distance after the adjustment has been reduced from 13,680 kilometers to a total distance of 10,468.12 kilometers. From the application of the heuristic method of truck routes, it was found that the area used on the trucks after the improvement was able to increase the average production volume from 21.69 cubic meters to 29.83 cubic meters.
