Creating an optimization environment

TNT Express delivers over 4.7 million parcels, documents and pieces of freight weekly to more than 200 countries, all while maintaining strict service requirements. Until 2005, TNT Express’ decision-making for its complex logistical operations did not utilize mathematical support. But competitive challenges convinced company leaders that they had to take a more fact-based and analysis-driven approach to decision-making. This led them to adopt Operations Research, choosing AIMMS and ORTEC as technology and implementation partners.
