An Adaptive Large Neighborhood Search for the Inventory-Routing Problem with Transshipments
We introduce the Inventory Routing Problem with Transshipments (IRPT), a special feature to the IRP so as to further reduce its cost. We propose an ALNS to handle the routing decisions and optimize the remaining problem using a network flow algorithm.

Solution Methods for Two-Echelon Vehicle Routing Problems Arising in City Logistics
We study the two-echelon vehicle routing problem (2E-VRP) that arises in two-level transportation systems, in particular in the context of city logistics. We developed a new solution method for the 2E-VRP based on Adaptive Large Neighborhood Search (ALNS) and present computational results that show the excellent performance of the method.

A MIP Tabu-Search Heuristic for the Capacitated Location-Routing Problem Based on Set-Partitioning Models with Additional Cuts
We present a tabu search heuristic based on the resolution of MIP models with additional cuts for the CLRP. We extend the so-called reallocation model by introducing new cuts that strengthen the lower bounds. We present preliminary computational results.

Moving Freight Inside Cross Docking Terminals
Cross docking is a transshipment platform used as a consolidation point in logistic networks. Moving freight inside these terminals depends highly on manpower, which makes it costly. In this presentation, we introduce a model for freight transportation inside these terminals and discuss the factors that could affect them.
