  title={The N-echelon Location routing problem: concepts and methods for tactical and operational planning},
  author={Jes{\'u}s Gonz{\'a}lez-Feliu},
Ce papier propose une unification de la notation et de la modelisation des reseaux de transports a echelons multiples dans le but d'optimiser le cout global du systeme. Un modele de programmation lineaire pour le NE-LRP est analyse et ses limites dans la recherche de solutions optimales sont definies. Les principaux methodes heuristiques adaptes a cette famille de problemes sont aussi decrits.

The Two-Echelon Capacitated Vehicle Routing Problem: Models and Math-Based Heuristics

The family of two-echelon vehicle routing problems (VRPs), a term that broadly covers such settings, where the delivery from one or more depots to customers is managed by routing and consolidating freight through intermediate depots, is introduced.


This paper reviews this class of problems that is characterized by the interaction between location and routing decisions and Mathematical models as well as heuristic and exact algorithms for their solution are presented.

Distribution network design: New problems and related models

The two-echelon capacitated vehicle routing problem

Multi-echelon distribution systems are quite common in supply-chain and logistic systems. They are used by public administrations in their transportation and traffic planning strategies as well as by

Models for Evaluating and Planning City Logistics Systems

This work focuses on a challenging city logistics planning issue, the integrated short-term scheduling of operations and management of resources, for the general case involving a two-tiered distribution structure.
