The considerable increase in parcel deliveries has negatively impacted the accessibility and livability of cities. One solution strategy is to decouple short-distance from long-distance shipping so that last-mile transport can be performed with low-footprint vehicles. Such solutions are referred to in the literature as multi-echelon...

Amsterdam Airport Schiphol aims to have a fully autonomous taxibot fleet that can taxi all incoming and outgoing flights by 2050. To support the transition towards this future state, wherein the demand for taxibots will initially be higher than the supply and operational concepts will continuously evolve, a flexible taxibot allocation model is...

Optimizing the routes of firefighting aircraft can reduce the time it takes to contain wildfires and make sure they remain within control. In this paper, a novel formulation of the Vehicle Routing Problem (VRP) is developed to improve aerial firefighting operations by optimizing aircraft routes. The formulation is a capacitated split delivery...

Following the Paris Accords, the aviation industry aims to become climate neutral by 2050. In this line, electric vehicles that tow aircraft during taxiing are a promising emerging technology to reduce emissions at airports. This paper proposes an end-to-end optimization framework for electric towing vehicles (ETVs) dispatchment at large...

Understanding preferences and behaviours in road freight transport is valuable for planning and analysis. This paper proposes a data-driven vehicle routing and scheduling approach for use as a descriptive tool to study road freight transport activities. The model developed seeks to capture planners’ or drivers’ preferences in order to...

Inspired by the vision of fully autonomous airside operations at Schiphol airport, this study aims to contribute to the short-term goal of automated aircraft ground handling. In this research, we design and evaluate a multi-agent system for planning of automated ground handling. There are two main components in the system: task allocation...

We study the problem of deploying a fleet of mobile robots to service tasks that arrive stochastically over time and at random locations in an environment. This is known as the Dynamic Vehicle Routing Problem (DVRP) and requires robots to allocate incoming tasks among themselves and find an optimal sequence for each robot. State-of-the-art...

Vehicle routing problems have been studied for more than 50 years, and their in- terest has never been higher. It is partly due to their significant economic impact. Decreasing the traveling time, certainly for big organizations, can save costs in the range of millions of dollars and increase their service quality. Moreover, the wide variety of...

Vehicle routing problems (VRP) and Container Loading Problems (CLP) have been studied for decades. However, the combination of the two deserves more attention than in the literature to date. When solving VRP problems, computed routes must be checked for feasibility. Among the feasibility checks to perform, we need to guarantee that the load plan...

Natural disasters pose a tremendous risk to the reliability of distribution networks. In this paper, a novel real-time UAV routing strategy for coordination between monitoring and inspection for post-disaster restoration in distribution networks is proposed. With our proposed real-time UAV routing strategy, damages can be inspected by UAVs...
