Launching of VRP-REP: the vehicle routing problem repository

We are glad to announce the launch of VRP-REP: the vehicle routing problem repository. As a result of the ever-increasing interest in vehicle routing problems, today VRP data (test instances and solutions) is being produced faster than ever. Since the community lacks a centralized open-to-everybody data repository, researchers typically share their data through their personal or institutional websites.
