Summary note:
This thesis will focus on the decision-making prospect of a company that owns a fleet of electric vehicles. The purpose of the fleet is to serve customers who request trips in a certain region. The goal of this thesis is to figure out what policies will maximize profit for the company while serving as many customers as possible. Although the work done in this thesis uses data specific to NJ, the method of finding the optimal decisions can be applied generally. In addition, the thesis will consider the makeup of cars for the fleet (size of fleet, size of batteries for individual cars).
