Warehouse Last Mile Delivery Optimization

This project, working with a regional distribution company, focusses on optimizing the transportation to deliver their products efficiently to customers. Some of the challenges include looking at the routes that delivery trucks take between the warehouse and the customer locations, optimally packing the delivery trucks to deliver more products with the same number of trucks and potentially justify the creation of intermediate distribution hubs. The business objectives and benefits include being able to deliver more orders with the same number of trucks, increasing the customer satisfaction by more reliably delivering the products on time and reducing energy consumption by making the distribution network more efficient.
