Redistribution Problem of Relief Supply and Vehicle Operation for Post Disasters

The great earthquakes have occurred in various places of Japan after an interval of several years, and the mudslide disasters also have occurred about every rainy season for the past several years. After the disaster occurred around one week, it seems that some shelters have oversupplied relief commodities, others have lacked them. As some survivors cannot stay at shelters for some private reason, they must stay at their home even if the lifeline stops. This study consider to redistribute the oversupply at shelters and relief supply at local distribution center to the shelters and other locations as elderly care home lacked relief commodities. From the computational results, regardless of the balance between total volume of relief oversupplied and total volume of relief lacked, it is clear that this approach can find the locations with or without relief supply.
