Developing efficient freight networks by reducing backhauls and truck consolidation with Lineage Logistics.


 

Summary

The transportation logistics network spanning across the United States is complex and ever growing. Fleets of trucks must be able to deliver their freight to locations across the country while managing their inventories and reducing the time and distance they spend on the road. By using operations research and data analytic techniques, we were able to simplify this problem, finding ways to optimize the tracking and scheduling of these trucks.

What We Did

Analyze large amount of data from MySQL Database

Cluster states using K-mean Algorithm

Optimize truck loads using bin-packing algorithm

Develop a scalable python program to detect best routes for trucks
