Title: Goods Distribution with Electric Vehicles

Abstract: In this talk I will describe several contextual features of goods distribution with electric vehicles, such as market shares, cost, competitive advantages, battery features, driving ranges, charging stations, and adoption incentives. I will then discuss several promising research areas in transportation science, including vehicle routing, fleet size and mix and depot charge scheduling. This talk covers some joint research results with Aurélien Froger, Ola Jabali, Jorge Mendoza, Samuel Pelletier, and Maximilian Schiffer.
