Electric vehicles (EVs) have been adopted in urban areas to reduce environmental pollution and global warming as a result of the increasing number of freight vehicles. However, there are still deficiencies in routing the trajectories of last-mile logistics that continue to impact social and economic sustainability. For that reason, in this paper, a...

The maximal covering location problem attempts to locate a limited number of facilities in order to maximize the coverage over a set of demand nodes. This problem is NP-Hard and it has been often addressed by using metaheuristics, where the execution time directly depends on the number of evaluations of the objective function. In this paper, the pr...

In the optimization field there are a number of problems called NP, which are those that can be solved by a nondeterministic polynomial time algorithm for a resolution. Because the real world is not static, but dynamic, the need to bring these problems to test reality is created, hence arise dynamic optimization problems (PODs). One of the classic...
