- In View of the vehicle routing problem with simultaneous delivery and pickup (VRPSDP) for cold-chain logistics, this paper analyzed the cost structure of vehicle fixed cost, running cost, refrigerating cost and cold-chain goods deteriorating cost in the process of delivery and pickup. By minimizing the total cost and integrating the delivery and pickup operation in cold chain logistics, an optimization model of VRPSDP for cold-chain logistics with a single distribution center and multiple client nodes was established. A genetic algorithm was designed to solve the problem. The results of empirical analysis verify that the established model and its algorithms are feasible and effective.
