Modeling, simulation and optimization
This project deals with the concept of inviting in-store customers for delivering parcels, on their way home, ordered by on-line customers. In addition, the company must maintain a backup of professionals for delivering the remaining parcels, optimized by a vehicle routing problem. This approach will reduce environmental impacts and urban congestion at low marginal cost to the company. This project concerns the development of models and tools for solving this problem, which turns out to be a very challenging stochastic combinatorial optimization problem.
