Link and test logistics models for demand forecasting, shift scheduling, and vehicle routing

In this 10-minute video, we’ll walk through linking three logistics models (demand forecasting, shift scheduling, and vehicle routing) for a hypothetical farm share business that delivers produce boxes from local farms to customers’ homes.

We’ll use the output of an OR-Tools-based demand forecasting app (forecasted order volume) plus targets as the input for the HiGHS shift scheduling app. Then we’ll use the output of the shift scheduling app (driver shift assignments) as the input for the Nextmv vehicle routing app. We’ll solve for route assignments that we’ll analyze using the experimentation tools in the Nextmv platform.
