The Middle-Middle Transportation Technology team builds the underlying technology that powers Amazon’s middle-mile network across the globe. Middle mile operations has finite resources (Trailers, Containers) to move the loads to serve the customer demands. Often these moves involve moving the loads from Fulfillment center to Delivery Stations. There is always an imbalance created within the middle mile network where resources accumulate at certain places . The Network balance and Equipment Optimization(NBEO) team within Middle Mile, owns systems that reposition the resources (Trailers, Container) at the right place at the right time while minimizing the cost. This is a unique opportunity to work on cutting edge NP Hard problems/Algorithms that saves Amazon MM of $ in freight movements.
