The purpose of this study was to tackle multi-compartment vehicle routing problem in intelligent logistics with the fruit fly optimization algorithm (FOA). A hybrid FOA (HFOA) integrated with three local search methods (2-opt, swap and insert) was adopted to solve the multi-compartment vehicle routing problem (MCVRP) in intelligent logistics by applying discrete space optimization problems. The numerical experiments show that the HFOA algorithm has improved the performance for all proposed problems, including improving the total path length and enhancing the solution quality. The improvement rate in total path length shifts from 3.21 % at 50 customers to 9.83 % at 150 customers indicating that this HFOA is more effective in largescale. The HFOA integrated with 2-opt, swap and insertion elevates the solution quality from 11.86 % to 17.16 % displaying the advantages. The effectiveness and stability of the proposed algorithm shed new light on the routing of MCV distribution problems in intelligent logistics.
