The candidate needs to find out how many trucks are required to support shipping operations whilst keeping costs at a minimum.
Candidate needs to provide an approach and explain this to interviewer before additional information/data is shared.
This is a case that requires optimization and candidate needs to only use data that is provided.
Our client is a local shipping firm in Spain where they handle local shipping of packages delivered by international shipping firms like FedEx, UPS & DHL. These firms deliver packages to the key city hubs and then our client takes it from there.
They want to know how many trucks they should lease to support their operations. From a cost-savings perspective they can only lease one model-type and we need to find out how many trucks the start-up needs.
