"Decision Support for Attended Home Deliveries in Urban Areas"

In this talk, I will discuss the challenges associated with home delivery problems and review some of the major research directions. I will specifically discuss two examples of my work. First, I will discuss the problem of what delivery options to offer customers in next day delivery, which was inspired by work with grocery delivery providers. Second, I will discuss a same day delivery problem inspired by delivery practices such as Amazon’s Prime Now. I will conclude with a discussion of open research problems in this field of operations research.
