K-Adaptability in stochastic optimization

We consider stochastic problems in which both the objective function and the feasible set are affected by uncertainty. We address these problems using a K-adaptability approach, in which K solutions for the underlying problem are computed before the uncertainty dissolves and afterwards the best of them can be chosen for the realised scenario. This paradigm … Read more

On the Stochastic Vehicle Routing Problem with time windows, correlated travel times, and time dependency

Most state-of-the-art algorithms for the Vehicle Routing Problem, such as Branch-and- Price algorithms or meta heuristics, rely on a fast feasibility test for a given route. We devise the fi rst approach to approximately check feasibility in the Stochastic Vehicle Routing Problem with time windows, where travel times are correlated and depend on the time of … Read more

A new drayage problem with different customer services and container requirements

This paper investigates a drayage problem generalizing a previously proposed, which is motivated by a case study of a real maritime carrier. To serve export and import customer requests in the hinterland of a port, a fleet of trucks able to carry one or two containers of the same size is adopted. The aim of … Read more
