"Solving the Two-State Fixed-Charge Transportation Problem with a Hybrid Genetic Algorithm";
Carpathian Journal of Mathematics,
This article considers the two-stage fixed-charge transportation problem which models an important transportation application in a supply chain, from manufacturers to customers through distribution centers. For solving this optimization problem we describe a hybrid algorithm that combines a steady-state genetic algorithm with a local search procedure. The computational results for an often used collection of benchmark instances show that our proposed hybrid method delivers results that are competitive to those of other state-of-the-art algorithms for solving the two-stage fixed-charge transportation problem.
