Inventory routing is key issue in logistics. The ROADEF/EURO Challenge 
2016 ( was devoted to this 
topic and focused on an inventory routing problem proposed by Air 
Liquide. The inventory routing problem proposed by Air Liquide arises in 
their healthcare business (, which 
delivers large (bulk) volumes of liquid oxygen to 7500 hospitals 
worldwide. Their inventory routing problem incorporates both vendor 
managed inventory (VMI) customers (the majority) and call-in customers 
(still a significant number) who are served on demand.

We invite papers for a special section of/Transportation Science/devoted 
to this variant of the Inventory Routing Problem. All papers submitted 
have to discuss approaches that can solve the ROADEF instances. All 
papers will go through the standard review process of/Transportation 
Science/. Up to five accepted papers will be published in the special 
section; others may appear as regular journal articles.
