Abstract:In retail e-commerce, e-retailers try to increase customer satisfaction by offering the customer time windows for the delivery of their orders. This imposes many logistical challenges on the e-retailers. We study the impact of the composition of the delivery fleet (as follows from the assignment of a limited number of drivers to the delivery vehicles) on the operational decision regarding the time windows to offer to a customer when an order is placed. We evaluate the impact of several strategies, to find an optimal balance between customer satisfaction and route efficiency in different scenarios.
