Using Advanced Optimization Algorithms in Transport and Logistics

Using Advanced Optimization Algorithms in Transport and Logistics

STARS Project Tutorial

Through this tutorial, participants will gain a comprehensive understanding of advanced optimisation algorithms and their applications, giving them the confidence to improve their current transport and logistics operations in the railway industry.

Date: 24 May 2023

Event: CETIC talks 


Algorithmic and combinatorial Optimisation 

Domaine: Transport & logistics 

Using Advanced Optimization Algorithms in Transport and Logistics turns the complex task of managing global transportation and logistics operations into a streamlined, efficient process. There will be a demonstration of powerful algorithms for integrated routing optimization solutions incorporating cartography and vehicle-routing algorithms. Vehicle Routing Problem (a combinatorial optimization problem) has a very high flexibility to accommodate exotic business-specific constraints and yet deliver high efficiency.

Using case studies, practical exercises and hands-on best practices, participants will learn best practices on how to apply these optimisation algorithms in their real-world transport and logistics operations to improve efficiency, reduce costs and increase customer satisfaction. At the end of the tutorial, participants can confidently implement the various optimisation techniques and techniques learned throughout the tutorial. They will also have the necessary tools to evaluate the outcomes of the optimisation techniques and make informed decisions for future improvements. Join this STARS Tutorial to understand better-advanced optimisation algorithms and how to use them to transform your transport and logistics operations.

The STARS project organises this webinar. The application of advanced technologies and their Europe-wide dissemination in internal company processes should help significantly improve traditional SMEs’ adaptability from the rail and mobility sector to the changed economic environment after the Corona crisis and increase their competitiveness on a European scale. The project thus contributes to the European Commission’s economic stimulus package. To achieve this, the STARS project aims to support international cooperation between technology-savvy SMEs/start-ups and traditional SMEs.
