Strategic Network Design for Parcel Delivery with Drones under Competition

This paper studies the economic desirability of UAV parcel delivery and its e ect on e-retailer distribution network while taking into account technological limitations, government regulations, and customer behavior. We consider an e-retailer o ering multiple same day delivery services including a fast UAV service and develop a distribution network design formulation under service based competition where … Read more

Models and algorithms for the robust resource constrained shortest path problem

We study the robust resource constrained shortest path problem (RCSPP) under uncertainty in cost and multiple resource consumption. Contrary to the deterministic RCSPP where the cost and the consumption of resources on an arc are known and fixed, the robust RCSPP models the case where both the cost and the resource consumption are random, and … Read more
