Hi. Let’s say there are two e-commerce companies that deliver goods. It’s possible that they swap their orders to make a delivery route more optimal. And I’m curious if there are such projects and does anyone needs it?

I don’t know of any such app, but I doubt it would be well received. A delivery company wouldn’t want to hand their order off to a competitor. Route optimization is an interesting subject, though. Humans are really good at it, but we’re having a hard time creating an efficient algorithm for computers to do it. Check out the traveling salesman problem.
