An Effective Genetic Algorithm for the Vehicle Routing Problem with Time Windows
The vehicel routing problem with time windows (VRPTW) was considered in this paper, and a genetic algorithm (GA) for the proposed problem was designed to minimize total travel distance. Finally we tested the proposed approach with Solomon’s test set, the experimental results show that the proposed GA is very effective compared with other approaches pulished recently.
