In large-scale shop floors and manufacturing environment, different transportation systems are applied in order to satisfy the material requirements of the systems. The limited capacity of vehicles and time consumption of the logistics processes require effective vehicle routing approaches so as to support production without glitches. The paper gives an overview of the appropriate models and the most efficient solver algorithms of the vehicle routing problem (VRP), introduces a novel approachdoi:10.1016/j.procir.2013.05.022 fatcat:6daogzothbcvrm2ipcxqbba4au
