Description In this project we explore different possibilities for the hybridization of exact methods such as branch and bound and dynamic programming with metaheuristics such as iterated local search and ant colony optimization. The problem domain to which we intend to apply these algorithmic developments is primarily the one of container loading and vehicle routing.
