A novel heuristic algorithm for capacitated vehicle routing problem
The vehicle routing problem with the capacity constraints was considered in this paper. It is quite difficult to achieve an optimal solution with traditional optimization methods by reason of the high computational complexity for large-scale problems. Consequently, new heuristic or metaheuristic approaches have been developed to solve this problem. In this paper, we constructed a new heuristic algorithm based on the tabu search and adaptive large neighborhood search (ALNS) with several specifically designed operators and features to solve the capacitated vehicle routing problem (CVRP). The effectiveness of the proposed algorithm was illustrated on the benchmark problems. The algorithm provides a better performance on large-scaled instances and gained advantage in terms of CPU time. In addition, we solved a real-life CVRP using the proposed algorithm and found the encouraging results by comparison with the current situation that the company is in.
A significant portion of Gross Domestic Production (GDP) in any country belongs to the transportation system. Transportation equipment, in the other hand, is supposed to be great consumer of oil products. Many attempts have been assigned to the vehicles to cut down Greenhouse Gas (GHG). In this paper a novel heuristic algorithm based on Clark and Wright Algorithm called Green Clark and Wright (...متن کامل
The Capacitated Vehicle Routing Problem (CVRP) is a well known problem in the optimization literature. In this paper, we consider that there is a single depot (or distribution centre) that caters to the customer demands at a set of sales points (or demand centers) using vehicles with known limited capacities. The demand at each of these demand centers is assumed to be constant and known. Due to...متن کامل

An Imperialist Competitive Algorithm and a Mixed Integer Programming Formulation for the Capacitated Vehicle Routing Problem
The Vehicle Routing Problem (VRP), a famous problem of operation research, holds a central place in combinatorial optimization problems. In this problem, a fleet vehicles with Q capacity start to move from depot and return after servicing to customers in which visit only ones each customer and load more than its capacity not at all. The objective is to minimize the number of used vehicles and t...متن کامل
A Capacitated Vehicle Routing Problem considering Satisfaction Level of Customers: A Genetic Algorithm
Capacitated vehicle routing problem (CVRP) is one of the most well-known and applicable issues in the field of transportation. It has been proved to be an NP-Complete problem. To this end, it is needed to develop a high-performance algorithm to solve the problem, particularly in large scales. This paper develops a novel mathematical model for the CVRP considering the satisfaction level of deman...متن کامل
The vehicle routing problem (VRP) is famous as a nondeterministic polynomial-time hard problem. This study proposes a centroid-based heuristic algorithm to solve the capacitated VRP in polynomial time. The proposed algorithm consists of three phases: cluster construction, cluster adjustment, and route establishment. At the cluster construction phase, the farthest node (customer) among un-cluste...متن کامل
