Abstract

The vehicle routing problem with deliveries and pickups is the most important problem within reverse logistics. We review various models for this problem, including three which we believe to be more realistic but have been hitherto largely ignored by researchers. These are analysed in some detail. A reactive table search metaheuristic is proposed and the results analysed with a view to a better understanding of the problem structure.
