What is the best delivery strategy for the last mile?
Logistic service providers and city planners increasingly investigate how the parcel distribution of the future in a certain city should look like. How can parcels be delivered in a cost-efficient, customer-friendly, and yet sustainable way, in a time where classical door-to-door deliveries via vans are challenged by innovative concepts like cargo bikes, autonomous and self-driving parcel lockers or crowd-souring? The LastMileExplorer combines state-of-the-art routing heuristics with a simulation framework to estimate the cost structure of different strategies in an interactive and quick manner.
