Offering time windows to receivers of last-mile delivery is becoming a distinguishing factor. However, we see that in practice carriers have to create routes for their vehicles based on destination information, that is just being revealed when a parcel arrives in the depot. The parcel has to be assigned directly to a vehicle, making this a Dynamic Assignment Vehicle Routing Problem. Incorporating time windows is hard in this case. In this paper an approach is presented to solve this problem including Time Windows. A comparison is made with a real observation and with a solution method for the base problem
