Megacity Logistics in Action: Advance Optimization for Sustainable Urban Delivery
This session will explore the intersection of advanced optimization and sustainable logistics in the context of ever-expanding megacities. We ground our exploration in the collaborative research undertaken between Indonesia and the Netherlands, with Jakarta as our focal point.
In an era of rapid urbanization coupled with the surge in e-commerce, logistics management is evolving into a critical determinant of economic development, environmental sustainability, and societal well-being. Leveraging Jakarta as a comprehensive case study, we examine how innovative optimization strategies can help mitigate congestion, reduce emissions, and drive economic efficiency. It highlights the transferability of these strategies to other growing megacities globally, building a resilient and scalable logistics framework.
Our panel, representing academia from Institut Teknologi Bandung, an Assistant Professor from Eindhoven University of Technology, and an innovative thought leader from Paxel, will ignite the session by discussing parcel delivery in a megacity. Subsequently, their diverse insights will stimulate a comprehensive discourse around the deployment of state-of-the-art optimization techniques as a transformative tool in logistics management.
This session seeks to engage academics (including prospective PhD students), policymakers, and industry practitioners in a dialogue on how best to leverage advanced optimization methods in shaping the future of megacity logistics. It is an opportunity to identify, discuss, and navigate the challenges and potentialities of these techniques to ensure efficient, sustainable urban growth.
