A Mathematical Model for Vehicle Routing Problem in a Flexible Supply Network
Hamed Fazlollahtabar, Iraj Mahdavi, Nezam Mahdavi-Amiri and Amir Mohajeri

Abstract:
The development of robust supply chains requires careful attention to both the location of individual supplier facilities and the opportunities for effective transportation among them. Here, we propose a supply chain which considers multiple depots, multiple vehicles, multiple products and multiple customers, with multi time periods. The supplier receives the order and forwards it to depots of multiple products. The depots investigate the capacity level and accept/refuse supplying the order. Considering the location of the customers, the depots decide upon sending the suitable vehicles. Each vehicle has its specific traveling time and cost. We present a mathematical model for the allocation of orders to depots and vehicles minimizing the total cost. We also provide a Lingo encoding and use it to solve an illustrating example to show the effectiveness of the proposed model.

How can I get hold of the LINGO code for this problem?
