Working as Huawei’s consumables delivery manager, you are responsible for the deliveries of consumables from a depot to your customers. Based on a fleet of vehicles, your goal is to minimize the total transportation cost by determining a set of routes for each vehicle such that the demand of consumables of each customer is served subject to vehicle capacity constraints.
