Jamila Sassi, Ines Alaya, Moncef Tagina


The vehicle routing problem has attracted a lot of interest during many decades because of its wide range of applications in real life problems. This paper aims to test the efficiency and capability of bee colony optimization for this kind of problem. We present a Bee-route algorithm: a multi-objective artificial Bee Colony algorithm for the Vehicle Routing Problem with Time Windows. We have performed our experiments on well known benchmarks in the literature to compare our proposed algorithm results with other state-of-the-art algorithms.
