Ship routing problems are a particular kind of routing problems where the vehicles to be routed are vesselsor ships, usually in maritime environments. In contrast to land routing, ship routing has unique features,including overnight trips, disjoint time windows, not necessarily prespecified routes, and a great uncertaintyderived from weather conditions. In this work we present a special ship routing problem, which incorporatesmany features present in general ship routing settings. We discuss aspects related with data gathering andupdating, which are particularly difficult in the context of ship routing. Additionally, we present a GRASPalgorithm to solve this problem.We apply our solution approach to a salmon feed supplier based in southernChile, and present computational results on real data.Nota general
