Optimisation of Waster Management System
In Sweden, logistics account for 80% of the total cost for waste management. Currently, the waste-collecting schedule hardly takes into account the dynamics in the amount of waste generated, and hence the waste collecting trips are sub-optimal.
By means of new technical solutions, e.g., APPs and/or sensors, data of the dynamic demand for waste collection are becoming more and more available. Our research addresses optimal scheduling and routing for waste manaement based on online and real-time data collection.
