Overview

The Vehicle Routing Problem (VRP) has been an especially active and fertile area of research. Over the past five to seven years, there have been numerous technological advances and exciting challenges that are of considerable interest to students, teachers, and researchers. The Vehicle Routing Problem: Latest Advances and New Challenges will focus on a host of significant technical advances that have evolved over the past few years for modeling and solving vehicle routing problems and variants. New approaches for solving VRPs have been developed from important methodological advances. These developments have resulted in faster solution algorithms, more accurate techniques, and an improvement in the ability to solve large-scale, complex problems.

The book will systematically examine these recent developments in the VRP and provide the following in a unified and carefully developed presentation: Present novel problems that have arisen in the vehicle routing domain and highlight new challenges for the field; Present significant methodological advances or new approaches for solving existing vehicle routing problems; Summarize the most significant research results for the vehicle routing problem and its variants from 2000 to the present.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
From the reviews:

"The routing of vehicles with limited capacities for carrying goods or people is one of the major problems in transport logistics. … The book is clearly structured and mostly well written. I can recommend it to any reader who wants to deepen his or her understanding of vehicle routing problems. … the book is not only suited for experts in the area of vehicle routing but also for interested practitioners (especially the application-oriented chapters); and students." (T Hanne, Journal of the Operational Research Society, Vol. 60 (11), 2009)
