Increasingly complex variants of the vehicle routing problem with time windows (VRPTW) are coming into focus, alleviated with advances in the computing power. VRPTW is a combination of the classical traveling salesman and bin packing problems, with many real world applications in various fields – from physical resource manipulation planning to virtual resource management in the ever more popular cloud computing domain. The basis for many VRPTW approaches is a heuristic which builds a candidate solution that is subsequently improved by a search or optimization procedure. The choice of the appropriate heuristic may have a great impact on the resulting quality of the obtained schedules. In this paper we use genetic programming to evolve a suitable heuristic to build initial solutions for different objectives and classes of VRPTW instances. The results show great potential, since this method is applicable to different problem classes and user-defined performance objectives.
