Local Shipper Pick Up Optimization with Box Truck
In middle mile transportation (transportation of manufactured goods from manufacturing centers to warehouses and distribution centers) there are three types of standard trailers, including Box Trucks. Box Trucks have the advantage of being faster, easier to operate and having greater flexibility to handle different types of warehouse facilities, but also have limitations in range and volume capacity. The student team worked to understand the optimal application and route planning of Box Trucks in a regional network.
