Vehicle Routing Problem for Multiple Product Types, Compartments, and Trips with Soft Time Windows

Read this article. The paper presents a mathematical model to solve vehicle routing challenges. In your own words, explain what vehicle routing is and why it's important to a supply chain.


In this paper, we present a mathematical model for the vehicle routing problem for multiple product types, compartments, and trips with soft time windows. We have verified our feasibilities and attended the optimal solution for the problems. We use the software package AIMMS to solve the problems on a personal computer. The run times are acceptable. Numerical results show the effectiveness of our model.
