I’m a bit surprised by the verdict. If I were the editor, I would reject the paper.
"The paper is strong on the relevance dimension. It was interesting to read, and I am sure there will be many readers who will be interested to read this paper. Moreover, it is written very well, and on many occasions the authors have done a good job of describing the key concepts in words. Those working in freight optimization would likely find this paper timely and useful."
