[DMANET] Research grant: Emerging Optimization Models for Transportation

Research grant in "Optimization Models for Transportation with

INESC TEC is accepting applications to award one Postdoctoral Grant in
project "LASTMILE - Rethinking last-mile delivery through

Project overview:
This project deals with inviting in-store customers for delivering
parcels, ordered by on-line customers, on their way home. The
remaining parcels must be delivered by the company's fleet of
professional drivers, whose route is optimized as a vehicle routing
problem. This allows reducing environmental impacts and urban
congestion. The project concerns the development of models and tools
for solving this problem, which turns out to be a very challenging
stochastic combinatorial optimization problem.

Reference Monthly Value (gross): €2.128,34
