Improving E-commerce Logistics with Machine Learning

Business talk | English

Track 2 - Theatre 18

Wednesday - 14.05 to 14.45 - Business

Retail & Logistics

Logistical processes are key to ensure profitability and scalability in any e-commerce business operations. In the case of Mercadona’s online service, we have developed a complete in-house suite of logistics tools for stock procurement, orders management and distribution, which allows us to optimise our logistics. One of the most important parts of this suite is the management and processing of data that allows us to optimize processes to do more with less.

In this talk, we will show how we have applied Big Data and Machine Learning to different processes within our logistics chain. Some of these processes we will focus on are: sales forecasting to minimize safety stock, route optimization for last-mile delivery and order batching improvement.
