Most of the literature concerns the design of routes through customers for one resource (for example, a fleet of capacitated vehicles). However, it is quite common in realworld applications the need of optimizing more than one resources (for example, vehicles and drivers), both very interrelated but each one with different requirements. This talk will address some optimization problems in this category.
The motivation of our research started when solving an airline problem in Canary Islands operating about 150 flights (customers) every day. Each flight must be operated by one aircraft and one crew, and the problem is to compute optimal assignments (routes). There are eight airports in the islands, and two of them are hubs (Tenerife and Gran Canaria). To reduce overnight costs, a crew route must start and end in the same hub airport. Due to maintenance operations, each aircraft route must start and end in different hub airports. We will present different mathematical models and algorithms to find optimal routes detailed in "Omega" 43 (2014) 7182 and "Transportation Science" 51 (2017) 250268.

Routing plays an important role within the logistics operations at Amazon.com. In this talk we describe some routing problems that arise at Amazon. These problems are related to, for example, first mile, middle mile, and last mile ground logistics, as well as global logistics and air cargo logistics.
