Abstract:In this research, we investigated how to model the most efficient and robust logistical network for a parcel carrier, i.e. minimize total operational network costs. Using the literature on the hub location routing problem we modelled all elements of the logistical network. We modelled the network of Company X using a MILP formulation. Due to the size of the problem, using exact optimization becomes intractable. Therefore, we have proposed a simheuristic-based GVNS that can solve the HLRP as well as simulate the most promising solutions, so that we can perform a stochastic analysis on the best solution(s).
