RÉSUMÉ : We consider transportation problems arising in the context of City Logistics wherein carriers offer same-day transportation services comprising the pickup and delivery of a particular load at predetermined times. These problems are frequently faced by companies in a variety of applications such as urban courier services (e.g., delivery of small parcels) and dial-a-ride operations (e.g., taxi-services). Usually, such problems are framed and solved as a Pickup and Delivery Problem with Time Windows (PDPTW). We address a recently proposed variant of the PDP, the Pickup and Delivery Problem with Time Windows and Transfers (PDPTW- T). In this variant, transshipment of requests at fixed locations is allowed, such that more than one vehicle can be used to service a particular request.
