The Vehicle Routing Problem with Time Windows (VRPTW) consist of a fleet of vehicles and a set of customer/cities in which all the vehicles will start and end in the depot. The objective is to minimize the vehicle fleet and the sum of travel time. Genetic Algorithm (GA) is a heuristic method that uses genetics as a model for solving complex problems. It's a search technique to find approximate solutions into optimization. In GA, random population initialization technique is efficient but is takes more computational time for convergence in most of the instances.
