The literature provides numerous examples of either rich or multi-criteria Vehicle Routing Problems (VRPs). Practitioners claim, however, that real-life problems need effective methods for VRPs which are both rich and multiobjective. In the paper we investigate whether such problems can be efficiently handled by standard metaheuristics - genetic algorithms. The answer is affirmative. Additionally, the analysis conducted supports the thesis that it is purposeful to adjust components of metaheuristics so that they take advantage of the multiobjective nature of the problems they solve.
