Example text

2− ) and it is true. Then the procedure goes to the next location in p1 and gets 4+ which follows after 2− . Then, it checks if p4 is like (4+ , . . , 2+ , 4− ) and the answer is false. Thus, the request 1 is removed from the bundle and its new path is p1 = (1+ , 1− ). The path of request 2 can be repaired in a similar way. 3b). The insertion operator works in the following way. Given a request r that should be consolidated with other requests, it first searches for some neighbor nodes that can be used as a consolidation point near the pickup node r+ and than randomly chooses one of them as the basic point for insertion.

2004) also use the column generation technique and develop an exact algorithm to solve a practical variant of the PDP considering additionally a precedence restriction associated with the requests. This additional restriction enables the authors to strongly reduce the computation complexity of the shortest path problem and to solve instances up to 580 nodes. Another methodology that has proved successful for solving the PDP to optimality is the branch-and-cut which does not necessarily require tight constraints that can lead to a significant reduction of the solution space (Lu and Dessouky, 2004).

2008). 1 Exact algorithms The very first exact algorithm proposed for the multi-vehicle PDP may be the algorithm of Dumas et al. (1991). The authors use the column generation scheme by applying a set partitioning formulation of the PDPTW. The subproblem of generating valid routes is modeled as a constrained shortest path problem and solved by a forward dynamic programming (DP) approach. Some small instances with up to 4 vehicles and 14 customers and 3 vehicles and 15 customers with tight time windows are solved to optimality.
