ROUTE is a biennial series of international workshops and provides a
high quality forum for recent developments, trends and advances in the
theory, practice and application of mathematical models and optimization
methodologies in the field of Transportation with a special focus on
Routing. This year's ROUTE was held in Rambouillet , France from June 1
to 4 2016 and brought together around 30 academics, researchers, and
practitioners from more than 10 countries.

In connection with the activities of ROUTE 2016, this special issue on
"Vehicle Routing" invites both theoretical and methodological
contributions towards the design and development of innovative solution
approaches (exact, heuristic, and matheuristic approaches) to address
challenging logistic problems with a particular focus, but not
exclusively, on vehicle routing problems (new models and problem

Submissions are open to all, not only to ROUTE 2016 participants.

All contributions will be peer reviewed according to the usual standards
of the journal. Please submit your manuscript at
