Yu Bin et al. proposed an improved ant colony optimization for the VRP, which is better than some other meta-heuristic approaches [1]. Humberto César Brandão de Oliveira and Germano Crispim Vasconcelos proposed a hybrid search method associating non-monotonic Simulated Annealing to Hill-Climbing and Random Restart. They compared their algorithm with the best results published in the literature for the 56 Solomon instances, and it was shown how statistical methods can be used to boost the performance of the method [2].
