Abstract

Pickup and Delivery Problems (PDPs) have received significant interest in the past decades, both from researchers as well as from industry. This is in large part due to the industrial relevance of such transportation problems. The variety of specific features of different PDPs lead to various types of solutions, quite often based on combinatorial optimization approaches, but also decentralized approaches based on multi-agent systems (MAS). MAS-based solutions are studied in particular for large scale and dynamic PDPs. The design of MAS-based PDP solutions ...
