Green open location-routing problem considering economic and environmental costs
This paper introduces a new bi-objective vehicle routing problem that integrates the Open Location Routing Problem (OLRP), recently presented in the literature, coupled with the growing need for fuel consumption minimization, ...
A multi-objective model for the green capacitated location-routing problem considering environmental impact
The Capacitated Location-Routing Problem (CLRP) is a strategic-level problem involving the selection of one or many depots from a set of candidate locations and the planning of delivery routes from the selected depots to ...
MULTIPLE ANT COLONY SYSTEM FOR A VRP WITH TIME WINDOWS AND SCHEDULED LOADING
(Universidad de Tarapacá., 2009)
A monolithic approach to vehicle routing and operations scheduling of a cross-dock system with multiple dock doors
Cross-docking is a logistic strategy for moving goods from suppliers to customers via a cross-dock terminal with no permanent storage. The operational planning of a cross-dock facility involves different issues such as ...
Using safety stocks and simulation to solve the vehicle routing problem with stochastic demands
After introducing the Vehicle Routing Problem with Stochastic Demands (VRPSD) and some related work, this paper proposes a flexible solution methodology. The logic behind this methodology is to transform the issue of ...
