Paper Title:
Hybrid Heuristics for Multiple Production Forward/Reverse Logistics System
  Abstract

We consider a multiple production two-stage forward/reverse logistics system design problem where a fixed number of capacitated distribution/reclaiming centers are to be located with respect to capacitated suppliers and retail locations while minimizing the total costs, and take the random of demand/reclaiming into consideration. We also provide hybrid heuristic procedures for the problem, and develop transshipment heuristic to improve the duration of the proposed approaches. Finally we present computational results that show the high performance and effectiveness of the solution approaches.
