ALLOCATION/ROUTING: MODELS AND ALGORITHMS. VEHICLE ROUTING: METHODS AND STUDIES. STUDIES IN MANAGEMENT SCIENCE AND SYSTEMS - VOLUME 16

Allocation/routing problems involve determining a set of routes for a fleet of vehicles over a multiple day time horizon. Thus, these problems can be viewed as containing two components, one that allocates deliveries to days of the week and a second that forms routes over each day of the week. Allocation/routing problems arise in such diverse settings as garbage collection, industrial gas distribution and beer and soft drink distribution. In this paper, we describe application environments in which these problems arise, present formulations for several versions of the problem and review solution procedures. (Author/TRRL)
