English abstract:
We present a variable neighborhood search for the vehicle
routing problem with compartments where we incorporate some features
speci cally aiming at the packing aspect. Among them we use a measure
to distinguish packings and favor solutions with a denser packing, pro-
pose new neighborhood structures for shaking, and employ best- t and
best- t-decreasing methods for inserting orders. Our approach yields en-
couraging results on a large set of test instances, obtaining new best
known solutions for almost two third of them.
