In this study, a new framework for the vehicle routing problem with pickup and delivery (VRPPD) called RouteArt is presented. Furthermore, the enhanced Heuristic Bubble Algorithm (HBA), which is a nature-inspired algorithm, is presented as a new solution approach to the VRPPD problem. This flexible web-based framework gives the user opportunity to solve the routing problems using HBA and report the solution. In order to show the benefit of using RouteArt with HBA, five case studies are discussed, and the profit of using the proposed enhanced HBA is shown with comparisons.
