In this paper we address the Two-Echelon Vehicle Routing Problem (2E-VRP), an extension of the classical VRP, where the delivery from a single depot to customers is managed by routing and consolidating the freight through intermediate depots that are called satellites. We present a family of Multi-Start heuristics based on separating the depot-to-satellite transfer and the satellite-to-customer delivery by iteratively solving the two resulting routing subproblems, while adjusting the satellite… CONTINUE READING
