چکیده

In this paper, a novel methodology is proposed to solve a cooperative multi-depot vehicle routing problem. We establish a mathematical model for multi-owner VRP in which each owner (i.e. player) manages single or multiple depots. The basic idea consists of offering an option that owners cooperatively manage the VRP to save their costs. We present cooperative game theory techniques for cost saving allocations which are obtained from various coalitions of owners. The methodology is illustrated with a numerical example in which different coalitions of the players are evaluated along with the results of cooperation and cost saving allocation methods.

A Hybrid Metaheuristic Algorithm for the Vehicle Routing Problem with Delivery Time Cost

This paper addresses the Vehicle Routing Problem with Delivery Time Cost. This problem aims to find a set of routes of minimal total costs including the travelling cost and delivery time cost, starting and ending at the depot, in such a way that each customer is visited by one vehicle given the capacity of the vehicle to satisfy a specific demand. In this research, a hybrid metaheuristic approa...

A cooperative parallel metaheuristic for the capacitated vehicle routing problem

This paper introduces a cooperative parallel metaheuristic for solving the capacitated vehicle routing problem. The proposed metaheuristic consists of multiple parallel tabu search threads that cooperate by asynchronously exchanging best found solutions through a common solution pool. The solutions sent to the pool are clustered according to their similarities. The search history information id...

A HYBRID ALGORITHM FOR THE OPEN VEHICLE ROUTING PROBLEM

The open vehicle routing problem (OVRP) is a variance of the vehicle routing problem (VRP) that has a unique character which is its open path form. This means that the vehicles are not required to return to the depot after completing service. Because this problem belongs to the NP-hard problems, many metaheuristic approaches like the ant colony optimization (ACO) have been used to solve OVRP in...

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 ...
