The two-echelon capacitated vehicle routing problem

  title={The two-echelon capacitated vehicle routing problem},
  author={Jesus Gonzalez-Feliu and Guido Perboli and Roberto Tadei and Daniele Vigo},
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 companies to model their distribution systems. Unfortunately, the literature on combinatorial optimization methods for multi-echelon distribution systems is very poor. The aim of this paper is twofold. First, the new family of MultiEchelon Vehicle Routing Problems is introduced. Second, their… CONTINUE READING
