    Abstract

    The basic Vehicle Routing and Scheduling Problem (VRSP) is described followed by an outline of solution approaches. Different variations of the basic VRSP are examined that involve the consideration of additional constraints or other changes in the structure of the appropriate model. An introduction is provided to Green Logistics issues that are relevant to vehicle routing and scheduling including discussion of the environmental objectives that should be considered. Particular consideration is given to VRSP models that relate to environmental issues including the timedependent VRSP, the transportation of hazardous materials and dynamic VRSP models. Finally some conclusions are drawn about further research needs in this area and the relation to road pricing.
