Sustainable Organic Integrated Livelihoods (SOIL) is a research and development organization that aims to increase access to cost-effective household sanitation services in urban communities in Haiti. Each week, SOIL provides over 1,000 households with ecological sanitation toilets, then transports the waste to be transformed into rich compost. However, SOIL faces several challenges regarding the route optimization of their mixed fleet vehicle routing. This paper builds upon the authors…

Sanitation: a global estimate of sewerage connections without treatment and the resulting impact on MDG progress.

Redefining sewerage-without-treatment as "unimproved sanitation" in MDG monitoring would raise the 1990 baseline population using unimproved sanitation from 53% to 64% and the corresponding 2015 target from 27% to 32%.

Vehicle Routing Problem

The vehicle routing problem with simultaneous deliveries and pickups (VRPSDP) has attracted much research interest because of the potential to provide cost savings to transportation and logistics

Diarrhea incidence in low- and middle-income countries in 1990 and 2010: a systematic review

The results indicate that diarrhea incidence rates may be declining slightly, the total burden on the health of each child due to multiple episodes per year is tremendous and additional funds are needed to improve both prevention and treatment practices in low- and middle-income countries.

An Effective Multirestart Deterministic Annealing Metaheuristic for the Fleet Size and Mix Vehicle-Routing Problem with Time Windows

A new deterministic annealing metaheuristic for the fleet size and mix vehicle-routing problem with time windows that outperforms the previously published results and found 167 best-known solutions.

Routing a Heterogeneous Fleet of Vehicles

In the well-known Vehicle Routing Problem (VRP) a set of identical vehicles, based at a central depot, is to be optimally routed to supply customers with known demands subject to vehicle capacity
