The resource constrained shortest path problem (CSP) asks for the computation of a least cost path obeying a set of resource constraints. The problem is NP-complete. We give theoretical and experimental results for CSP. In the theoretical part we present the hull approach, a combinatorial algorithm for solving a linear programming relaxation and prove that it runs in polynomial time in the case of one resource. In the experimental part we compare the hull approach to previous methods for
