This paper proposes a new pro-active real-time control approach for dynamic vehicle routing problems in which the urgent delivery of goods is of utmost importance. Without assuming any distribution, stochastic knowledge about future requests is generated using past request information. The generated knowledge is integrated into the transportation process, which is controlled by a Tabu Search algorithm, in order to actively guide vehicles to request-likely areas before requests arrive there.
