The Vehicle Routing Problem with Backhauling deals with the supply of finished goods from a depot to a number of delivery points, and picking up returnable items and bringing them back to the depot using a fleet of trucks. Traditionally, the objective of the problem has been to determine the truck routes such that the total number of trucks and/or the total distance traveled/total route cost are minimized. Most of the papers available in the literature in this connection deal with problems… CONTINUE READING
