How To Synchronize Complex Routing Operations (Synched VRPs) with Gurobi

September 2nd, 2020

Please join us for this upcoming webinar

Logistics planners in the Transportation, Logistics, Delivery, Courier or Travel, and Tourism & Hospitality industries face significant operational and financial challenges today.

Surging demand for goods by customers has resulted in increasingly complex routing problems. In order to satisfy this demand and deliver the right products to the right places at the right times to customers, companies providing logistics services must be able to coordinate several crews and fleets and utilize their resources (such as vehicles and workers) in the most efficient manner possible.

The key to profitability for companies providing logistics services is being able to generate schedules and routes that enable them to perform tasks in the shortest possible time and optimize the utilization of their critical resources.

In this webinar, we will:

  • Present different ways to model vehicle routing problems.
  • Discuss the advantages of each modeling alternative.
  • Explain how to model the requirements related to synching resources in routing activities.
  • Present different approaches to address larger problems by means of combining different mathematical models in a clever way.
  • Assess the best modeling alternative depending on the size of the problem.

For your convenience we have two sessions for you to choose from:

Spanish Session: Tuesday, September 1st at 5 pm CEST (GMT +2)

English Session: Wednesday, September 2nd at 8 am PDT (GMT -7)
