Resumen

In this paper, we consider the use of lockers in parcel delivery, a recent method used in last mile logistics. Lockers are pickup points made of several cells that are located in several points of a city where customers can collect their parcels as an alternative to home delivery. We study routing problems in which one or multiple vehicles are used to deliver parcels directly to customers or lockers. We also study the influence of the introduction of lockers when these problems include time windows. We propose a set of novel formulations for these problems, some valid inequalities, and a branch-and-cut algorithm. Moreover, we investigate the difference between the routing problems with lockers and the classical routing problems.
