About the company

Quick is a logistics digital platform specialized in Inventory, Transportation and Distribution. Outside of Colombia they operate in Brazil, Chile and Mexico and cover 78 cities in Latin America. They have as clients major corporations such as L'Oréal, Unilever, Johnson & Johnson, Nutresa, Homecenter, etc.

The Challenge

This Challenge is based on the case of one of the most important clients of Quick. The objective is to develop a software that optimizes Quick's vehicles routing to deliver more than 200 customers from 15 different warehouses in Bogotá. The software has to automatically decide for each vehicle which warehouses and customers to visit and when, in order to minimize costs and maximize service level.

For the first time in the history of the Challenge, our students had to compete against an algorithm and not a human made solution. Working with Quick experts probably amongst the best in latin america was a very rewarding.

Vehicle Routing Problems are a classic in Operations Research. However, our students had to confront with variations that made the problem pretty hard to optimize : heterogeneous fleet of vehicles, picking up the products from multiple warehouses, non-constant picking times that depend on the route itself, etc.  

Comments from the expert


The Vehicle Routing Problem is known to be very complex to optimize. For instance, a problem with only 60 clients leads to number of possible combinations higher than one icosipentillion (imagine a number with 75 zeros !). In order to find a good solution in a very short time, the winners used a combination of many optimization algorithms (metaheuristics and proper heuristics. They implemented hybrid techniques such as mutli-stage (also called low-level hybrid) and high-level relay hybrid. In less technical terms this means that they implemented cooperation between algorithms that are fast but not so accurate and algorithms that are accurate but rather slow. Which is the magic recipe for getting the ideal treadeoff between getting a solution fast and getting a very good solution.
