Online Ordering Platform City Distribution Based on Genetic Algorithm

06/22/2021 ∙ by Yu Du, et al. ∙ 0

Since the rising of the takeaway ordering platform, the M platform has taken the lead in the industry with its high-quality service. The increasing order volume leads the competition between platforms to reduce the distribution cost, which increases rapidly because of the unreasonable distribution route. By analyzing platform distribution's current situation, we study the vehicle routing problem of urban distribution on the M platform and minimize the distribution cost. Considering the constraints of the customer's expected delivery time and vehicle condition, we combine the different arrival times of the vehicle routing problem model using three soft time windows and solve the problem using a genetic algorithm (GA). The results show that our model and algorithm can design the vehicle path superior to the original model in terms of distribution cost and delivery time, thus providing decision support for the M platform to save distribution cost in urban distribution in the future.
