Abstract
This study considers network design, capacity planning and vehicle routing for collection systems in reverse logistics. The network design and capacity planning problems are to determine the static locations and capacities of collection points as well as the dynamic allocations of demand points to the opened collection points over a planning horizon, and the vehicle routing problem is to determine the number and routes of vehicles in such a way that each collection point must be visited exactly once by one vehicle starting and terminating at the depot while satisfying the return demands at collection points and the vehicle capacity. The objective is to minimize the sum of fixed costs to open collection points and to acquire vehicles as well as variable costs to transport returns at demand points to the opened collection points and travel the opened collection points by vehicles. Unlike the location-routing problems, the integrated problem considered in this study has several features: multi-period dynamic model, capacity planning for collection points, maximum allowable collection distances, etc. To solve the integrated problem, two types of tabu search algorithms, hierarchical and integrated ones, are suggested, and their test results are reported. In particular, the efficiency of the integrated approach is shown by comparing the two algorithm types.
