Impact of Traffic Management on Urban Routing

City logistics aims at fulfilling efficient deliveries in urban areas under consideration of traffic conditions and economics. The varying city traffic is a major uncertainty factor in the planning of city logistic service provider. A cooperation with local traffic management could reduce the uncertainty for planning through traffic information for a more effective delivery concept.

This project develops a framework for an integrated delivery concept through a cooperation between city logistic service provider and traffic management. Methodological this work aims at improving dynamic stochastic optimization and heuristic models for the vehicle routing problem.
