Paper Title:
The Research on VRP Based on Max-Min Ant Colony Algorithm
  Abstract

Vehicle routing problem (VRP) is the key to reducing the cost of logistics, and also an NP-hard problem. Ant colony algorithm is a very effective method to solve the VRP, but it is easy to fall into local optimum and has a long search time. In order to overcome its shortcomings, max-min ant colony algorithm is adopted in this paper, and its simulation system is designed in GUI of MATLAB7.0. The results show that the vehicle routing problem can well achieves the optimization of VRP by accessing the simulation data of database.
