Despite the vast amount of literature about vehicle routing problems, only very little attention has been paid to vehicles with compartments that allow transportation of inhomogeneous products on the same vehicle, but in different compartments. We motivate a general vehicle routing problem with compartments that is essential for several industries, like the distribution of food or petrol. We introduce a formal model, an integer program formulation and a benchmark suite of 200 instances. A… Expand
