Özet

In this work we deal with the Multi-vehicle One-to-one Pickup and Delivery Problem with Split Loads (MPDPSL). This problem is a generalization of the one-to-one Pickup and Delivery Problem (PDP) where each load can be served by multiple stops by the same vehicle. In practice split deliveries is a viable option in many settings such as courier services of third party logistics operators. We propose a branch-and-cut algorithm which employs valid inequalities devised for special cases of the MPDPSL, such as the Dial-a-Ride Problem, PDP and Split Delivery Vehicle Routing Problem. According to our computational experiments with randomly generated test instances, we may claim that the proposed algorithm can be used for small sized instances.
