We introduce and solve the Vehicle Routing Problem with Simultaneous Pick-ups and Deliveries and TwoDimensional Loading Constraints (2L-SPD). The 2L-SPD model covers cases where customers raise delivery and pick-up requests for transporting non-stackable rectangular items. 2L-SPD belongs to the class of composite routing-packing optimization problems. However, it is the first such problem to consider bidirectional material flows dictated in practice by reverse logistics policies. The aspect of… CONTINUE READING
