Paper Title
A literature review on Vehicle routing problems in a cross docking environment
Authors

Abstract
Vehicle routing is an integral part of supply chain management (SCM) and various strategies are applied to achieve maximum efficiency. It plays an important role in deciding about all the operations involved in an SCM. In a Vehicle Routing Problem (VRP) minimisation of the total supply chain cost through effective transportation methods is a major concern and hence the problem is addressed in different ways by researchers. This paper focuses on classification of the literature on VRP with more importance on models considering cross-docking for improving the supply chain efficiency. The main objective in an SCM is to minimize the inventory carrying cost, transportation cost and timely delivery with required quality. Cross docking is a strategy that is applied in SCM for minimizing these objectives where products are delivered to a location with minimum storage facilities by inbound vehicles transferring them to outbound vehicles in minimum time. Here a survey on methods is presented that applies cross docking for vehicle routing is carried out. The survey finds that majority of the literature shows that cross docking is very helpful in increasing the performance of a supply chain.

Keywords- Supply chain management, Vehicle routing problem, cross docking, Evolutionary algorithm.
