RÉSUMÉ : We address a variation of the traveling salesman problem with pickup and delivery in which loading and unloading operations have to be executed in a LIFO (Last-In-First-Out) order. We present a variable neighbourhood search based on three exchange operators specially adapted to this problem. We also evaluate the performance of the metaheuristic on instances from TSPLIB.
