The pickup and delivery problem addresses the real-world issues in logistic industry and establishes an important category of vehicle routing problems. The problem is to find the shortest route to collect and distribute objects under the assumption that the total supply and the total demand are in equilibrium. This study formulates a new problem, called the selective pickup and delivery problem (SPDP), by relaxing the constraint that all pickup nodes must be visited. Specifically, the SPDP aims… CONTINUE READING
