The waste collection vehicle routing problems with time windows and intermediate facilities (WCVRPTW-IF) is actually belong to a well-known generalization of VRP, the Multi-Depot Vehicle Routing Problem with Inter-Depot Routes (MDVRPI), which is a combinatorial optimization problem and holds a central place in reverse logistics management. in order to improve the route compactness, which is very important in practical application, we presents a clustering-based multiple ant colony system… CONTINUE READING
