A new report from Enter Quantum explains how supply chain enterprises are turning to quantum computers to solve routing problems.
Finding optimal delivery routes gets incrementally more difficult the more stops are added. Factor in the other variables that might affect the supply chain and you quickly exceed the constraints of current classical computing, leading some companies to resort to heuristics, or rules of thumb, to determine routes.
Quantum computers, which approach the problem in a novel way, can solve routing problems and minimize the resources needed. Early use cases have proven that they can deliver better solutions faster than classical technologies.
