Logistics on the last mile: New technologies, new delivery concepts, and new optimization problem

In the wake of e-commerce and its successful diffusion in most commercial activities, last-mile distribution causes more and more trouble in urban areas all around the globe. Growing parcel volumes to be delivered toward customer homes increase the number of delivery vans entering the city centers and thus add to congestion, pollution, and negative health impact. Therefore, it is anything but surprising that in recent years many novel delivery concepts on the last mile have been innovated. Among the most prominent are unmanned aerial vehicles (drones) and autonomous delivery robots taking over parcel delivery.

This talk presents a systematic classification scheme to record established and novel last-mile concepts. Based on this scheme, we consider different innovative delivery concepts of the farther future and elaborate some important optimization problems when setting up and operating these concepts.
