From 1-click buying to 0-click fulfillment
First, we will demonstrate how our fleet of real-time connected vehicles, smart planning algorithms, precise monitoring tools and predictive distribution models create an unprecedented distribution logistic system for groceries. Then we provide a look behind the scenes of our smart planning algorithm that broke world records of the famous traveling salesman problem (TSP). Finally, we deliver insights into the architecture and design of our distribution eco-system (planning, monitoring, execution, control components) and explain how we made them ready for autonomous distribution and self-driving vehicles.
