Abstract

TPBOSCourier is the Transportation Procurement and Bid Optimization System (TPBOS) for Philips Electronics to automate and optimize its procurement of courier services. It was jointly developed by Red Jasper Limited and the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, and has been successfully deployed in 2005. Philips typically procures courier services for more than 2500 shipping lanes annually and the use of the software has resulted in significant cost and time savings in analyzing and optimizing procurement decisions. This paper explains the development and design of the TPBOSCourier.
