A Branch-and-Cut Algorithm for a Vendor-Managed Inventory-Routing Problem
We consider a distribution problem in which a product has to be shipped from a supplier to several retailers over a given time horizon. Each retailer defines a maximum inventory level. The supplierExpand

A Tabu Search Algorithm for the Split Delivery Vehicle Routing Problem
We describe a tabu search algorithm for the vehicle routing problem with split deliveries. At each iteration, a neighbor solution is obtained by removing a customer from a set of routes where it isExpand

The periodic vehicle routing problem with intermediate facilities
Abstract In this paper, we study an extension of the PVRP where the vehicles can renew their capacity at some intermediate facilities. Each vehicle returns to the depot only when its work shift isExpand

Metaheuristics for the team orienteering problem
The Team Orienteering Problem (TOP) is the generalization to the case of multiple tours of the Orienteering Problem, known also as Selective Traveling Salesman Problem. A set of potential customersExpand

Analysis of the maximum level policy in a production-distribution system
We consider a production-distribution system, where a facility produces one commodity which is distributed to a set of retailers by a fleet of vehicles. Each retailer defines a maximum level of theExpand

Deterministic Order-Up-To Level Policies in an Inventory Routing Problem
We consider a distribution problem in which a set of products has to be shipped from a supplier to several retailers in a given time horizon. Shipments from the supplier to the retailers areExpand

The application of a vehicle routing model to a waste-collection problem: two case studies
In this paper we suggest a unique model for estimating the operating cost of each of three waste-collection systems. Under the traditional system, which is widely used, waste is typically collectedExpand
