Vehicle routing problem is an important content in supply chain field. This paper gives a review of achievements of vehicle routing problem. Several category methods are introduced, and quite a few common side conditions are summarized. Backgrounds and detail application fields for deterministic VRP, stochastic VRP and fuzzy VRP are introduced, different model methods for them are discussed, diverse algorithm ideas for them are summarized, and the advantage and limitation for these algorithm are discussed, furthermore, their applicable cope are also presented. On the other hand, brief summarization for home study is also presented. The further efforts are presented, while demand for application of supply chain is combined.
