In this presentation the authors (Angel A. Juan, Jarrod Goentzel, Tolga Bektas) discuss the vehicle routing problem with multiple driving ranges. The presentation describes an integer programming formulation and a multi-round heuristic algorithm
that iteratively constructs a solution to the problem. Using a set of benchmarks adapted
from the literature, the algorithm is employed to analyse how distance-based costs are increased when considering ‘greener’ fleet configurations – ie, when using electric vehicles
with different degrees of autonomy.
