However, a situation contrary to the aforementioned is seen to occur during a bi-level formulation of the vehicle routing problem. Moreover, the problem is general enough to conceivably arise in many real-world situations. In light of this fact, the present paper alleviates the stated requirement by incorporating a bi-level perspective into a multi-objective EA. Thereafter, a preliminary study is carried out on the multi-objective variant of the NP-hard vehicle routing problem with time window constraints (VRPTW), in order to demonstrate the efficacy of the proposed approach.
