Part of the Springer Series in Operations Research book series (ORFE)


The vehicle routing models discussed in Part II assume that the frequency, timing and sizes of customer deliveries are predetermined. There are however many distribution problems in which the vehicle schedules and the timing and size of the customer deliveries are (or should be) simultaneously determined. This is clearly the case in internal distribution systems in which the depot and the customers represent (part of) consecutive layers in the distribution network of a single company (see, e.g., Chapter 12).
