This paper reveals a current business situation where several types of subcontracting transportation are used for delivery services in forwarding companies. Each subcontracting option contains different cost structure and constraint set that make more complex in transportation planning. This problem comprises new aspects which extend the traditional vehicle routing problem (VRP). A simulated annealing (SA) technique is proposed for simultaneously solving the combination of optimization problems in vehicle routing and scheduling.
