This study is concerned with a rich vehicle routing problem (RVRP) encountered at a Belgian transportation company in charge of servicing supermarkets and hypermarkets belonging to a franchise. The studied problem can be classified as a one-to-many-to-one pick-up and delivery problem, where there is a single depot from which all delivery customers are served and to which every pick-up demand must be carried back (Gutiérrez-Jarpa et al., 2010). The delivery and backhaul customers are considered to be two disjoint sets, where on a given route backhaul customers can be visited only after all delivery customers are served. Split deliveries and pick-ups are not allow...
