Predicting customer basket weights

Vertical

Business Intelligence

The fastest delivery times can only happen when planning logistics ahead of time. Machine learning methods enable this to be done at a finer granularity and to far greater accuracy.

We developed a predictive model in Spark ML, which anticipates customers' home shopping orders, calculates these predicted weights in kg, therefore allowing van routes to be rostered based on capacity - before customers have finalised their order!
