Th. 4 Conclusions 29 Golden et al. (1984) investigates a problem of oil replenishment. Within this distribution problem, a fleet of gas tankers is available t o delivery fuel to consumers. Following a push-strategy, customers whose oil reserve is near empty should be visited within the next period. Since the period duration does not allow for visiting each customer, the most urgent customer deliveries have to be selected for fulfilment within the next period. Requests with the highest urgency are served immediately in the next period whereas customers with larger reserves are served only if time is still available within the considered period.

Rri falls into the specified time window: t m i n ( ~ il) e ( ~ il) tmax (pi) (TIME WINDOW). In the following, it is assumed that the initial positions of the vehicles are known and that the vehicles terminate their routes in one of a set of specified termination points (for example depots). The set 17* contains the requests incorporated into the route 17. A pd-schedule 0 is a set of pd-paths U 1 , .. ,Ilm so that each pd-request is assigned to a t most one of these paths. 36 3 Pickup and Delivery Selection Problems Filling R+ with the requests contained in one of the pd-paths I l l , .

However, the consideration of the four conditions PAIRING, PRECEDENCE, CAPACITY and TIME WINDOWS prevent the application or extension of results obtained for unconstrained shortest or longest path problems or optimal path problems with one additional constraint, which are surveyed by Ziegelmann (2001). 4 Problem Variants The GPDSP is a general model for the separation of a request portfolio into the subset of requests that are visited by own vehicles and into the subset of the remaining requests.
