The focus of this paper is to propose a bi-objective mathematical model for a new extension of a multi-period p-mobile hub location problem and then to devise an algorithm for solving it. The developed model considers the impact of the time spent traveling at the hubs' network, the time spent at hubs for processing the flows, and the delay caused by congestion at hubs with specific capacities. Following the unveiled model, a hybrid meta-heuristic algorithm will be devised that simultaneously takes advantage of a novel evaluation function, a clustering technique, and a genetic approach for solving the proposed model.
