Abstract
The Newspaper Production/Distribution Problem (NDP) involves a perishable good. Newspaper publishers cannot print the news sections of newspapers in advance, as they must be up to date. Additionally, delivery must be completed before morning commuting starts in metropolitan areas. Therefore, delivery delays at the printing plant are not acceptable, as they cause significant disturbances to the distribution chain. In this paper, we analyse the impact of using a second transelevator on the perform...
