In this work, we consider the Traveling Salesman Problem with Pickup and Delivery (TSPPD), which is an extension of the well-known NP-hard Traveling Salesman Problem. We propose a Genetic Algorithm (GA) based on a specially tailored tour improvement procedure for the TSPPD. Computational experiments are reported on the test instances taken from the literature. The experimental results suggest that the proposed GA yields a promising performance in terms of both accuracy and efficiency compared to existing algorithms in the literature.
