Operations Research at UPS

Jan. 21, 2010

The "OR/MS Today" newsletter (for Informs) included an article about operations research at UPS.  The article touches on the work that UPS is funding at CASTLE Lab, where we are building an optimization module that is part of a load planning tool (plans how shipments are routed through the network to maximize utilization of trucks).  The load planning tool is now running at the 100 largest hubs at UPS.
