A new rich vehicle routing problem model and benchmark resource.

  We describe a new rich VRP model that captures many real-world constraints, following a recently proposed taxonomy that addresses both scenario and problem physical characteristics. The model is used to generate 4800 new instances of rich VRPs which is made freely available. To the best of our knowledge this represents the most comprehensive resource of rich VRP problems available, and provides a platform for researchers to conduct rigorous comparisons of new methods and solvers, moving academic research much closer to real practice in the future.
