Mini Seminar: Last Mile Delivery - Data Analytics and Models
Professor Jaume Barcelo will give a one week seminar for master students in Logistics at Molde University College. We are happy to offer a 3 hour mini seminar during this week. Suited for businesses and others who are interested.
Last mile delivery of goods from e.g. e-commerce constitutes one of the more complex stages of the whole chain and accounts for a significant fraction of its total cost. Its complexity is a consequence of specific conditions connected with urban environments and the interaction between the implied shippers, carriers, administration and residents, as well as demand patterns and consolidation possibilities.
The seminar gives an overview of efficient management of the last mile delivery based on available information and models.
