Vehicle routing optimization - A key to improve transport and logistics operations

Vehicle routing optimization - A key to improve transport and logistics operations

Workshop in French | Routes, deliveries, mobility... these operations can become a real headache if without a perfectly controlled routing process! Learn how to handle the operational constraints of these operations with CETIC’s expertise in combinatorial algorithms.

Algorithmic and combinatorial Optimisation 

Domaine: Transport & logistics 


Routing is the process of finding the optimal route(s) from a starting point (factory, warehous, etc) to different destinations. Planning is the process of organizing routing in the best possible order, while taking into account operational or business constraints (vehicle capacity, traffic, time slots, etc.)

As a result of recent research projects, the CETIC team has developed algorithms to optimize roadmaps. The applications are multiple. For exemple:

  • optimize the cost of transport and deliveries
  • optimize staff roadmaps (technicians, deliverers, etc.)
  • automatically suggest carpooling
  • optimize mobility centers

This workshop will present the OscaR.cbls tool developed at CETIC, and its applications in vehicle routing. Emphasis will be placed on the flexibility and adaptability of algorithms to specific business constraints and on the integration between decision algorithms and mapping algorithms.

There will also be a demonstration of the RoutaR platform with presentation of two use cases.
