This paper investigates a single machine scheduling problem with job delivery coordination, in which each job demands different amount of storage space during transportation. In this problem, a set of independent jobs from a customer must first be processed on a machine without preemption and then delivered by two homogeneous vehicles to the customer in batches. To minimize the makespan, we develop a best possible polynomial-time heuristic with a worst-case ratio of 2.
