Our paper investigates the capacitated green vehicle routing problem with time-varying vehicle speed and soft time windows. The main contribution of this paper is to provide a new approach to modeling the non-linear time-varying vehicle speed and evaluating trade-offs between customer satisfaction and the fuel consumption in GVRP with urban traffic congestion consideration. An improved NSGA-II with adaptive strategies and greedy strategies is developed to solve the GVRP. We observe that the increase in speed divisions (as is common in existing literature) in models has a very limited effect on the fuel consumption and customer satisfaction in GVRP, but it results in to a large amount of computation. It is of great significance for urban carriers in a big data environment, where the real-time data of the road speeds can be obtained and it can be fitted and represented by a continuous function. This study offers a practical method for green vehicle routing in a big data environment.
