Vending Location Trading Platform (VLTP)

DC Food Truck Vending Location Trading Platform


This project strives to solve the problem of secondary trading of Mobile Roadway Vehicle (MRV) locations among Washington D.C. food trucks.  After the MRV schedule is created via a lottery system, the food trucks find they usually do not get the locations that they prefer, and are subject to a trading system that is burdensome and inefficient.

The stakeholders of this project desire a system that will maximize the number of trades and allow food trucks to enter preferences for location/day assignments they prefer in exchange for the ones that they have.
