What is VeRoLog

VeRoLog is the Working Group on Vehicle Routing and Logistics Optimization within EURO, the Association of the European Operational Research Societies.

Vehicle Routing optimization is at the core of Logistics and Supply Chain Management as well as people Transportation activities, and is a very active research area in Operations Research that sees an intense contribution from a large number of researchers working in European Universities, Research Centres and Companies.

The purpose of VeRoLog is to constitute an aggregation and reference point for the rich and active research community in order to:

  • favour the development and application of Operations Research models, methods and tools to the field of Vehicle Routing and Logistics.

  • encourage the exchange of information among practitioners, end-users, and researchers in the area of Vehicle Routing and Logistics, stimulating the work on new and important problems with sound scientific methods.

  • actively promote the interest on Vehicle Routing and Logistics in the scientific community by organizing dedicated workshops and conferences as well as contributing to all major ones with sessions and streams, offering specialized schools and seminars, editing special and contributed issues  in the most important scientific journals.

  • facilitate the networking activities that are crucial for the proposition of successful international research and industrial projects.

  • enhance professional opportunities for its members both in the academia and industry.

Special Issue in Transportation Research Part B on “Green urban transportation” - Call for Papers

Call for paper for the Special Issue in the Journal: Transportation Research Part B on “Green urban transportation”

Scope of topics and interest
Transportation sector is a major source of emissions, including greenhouse gases. It is important to promote green transportation in urban areas to provide a better living environment without affecting the mobility of goods and people. This special issue focuses on methodologies to model and deal with recent green transportation problems in urban areas, ranging from system modeling, planning, design, control, and management. The topics include, but not limited to, the following:

  • autonomous vehicle
  • bicycle and vehicle sharing
  • dial-a-ride
  • electric vehicle
  • public transport and paratransit
  • walking and cycling
