Project Duration

01.01.2019 – 31.12.2021

Located at

TU Berlin


Logistics networks keep growing in size and complexity, rendering them intractable for traditional optimization techniques. We investigate a contraction framework reducing the networks to manageable size, while preserving the routability of demands at a given cost, and under dynamic  changes of the network.
