Van Gansewinkel is a specialized service provider in the waste industry. Collecting and processing waste are their core activities.

The goal of the waste allocation solution is to reduce the costs of the logistic operation. The challenge is to optimally allocate waste flows from collection to processing facilities while satisfying the contractually agreed volumes per week and year.

A decision support solution is built in AIMMS to allocate the waste flows based on mathematical optimization. The business processes supported by the solution include creating and publishing allocation plans, operational support on calamities, and tactical support for the yearly budgeting process.

 “The material steering model is implemented in 2010. It allows us to centrally manage the material flows in the network, without regional suboptimization. The application shows its added value for optimized allocation, budgeting, scenario analysis and operational planning, which leads to significant cost savings.”
