39 Study on Two-Stage Transportation Planning with Inventory and Exclusionary Side Constraints by Boltzmann Random Key-Based GA

Transportation planning (TP) is a well-known basic network model that can be generally defined as a problem to minimize a total delivery cost. However the concept of inventory is not included in a traditional TP model. These restrictions on this model profoundly affect the use of the TP model in the real world. In this paper, we formulate the two-stage transportation problem with inventory and exclusionary side constraints (esc-2ITP). In this model, one year is divided into several terms and the annual demands of delivery centers are satisfied for each term. This model includes the additional constraint in which simultaneous...
