Read how cuOpt is transforming operations optimization by enabling better decisions with accelerated computing.


Explore the online forum for cuOpt where you can browse how-to questions and best practices, engage with other developers, and report bugs.


The NVIDIA cuOpt API provides world record-breaking operations optimization enabling better decisions with accelerated computing. Compute the most efficient plan, instantaneously, at scale. cuOpt delivers faster results compared to traditional solutions, enabling organizations to reduce miles driven and carbon emission, accelerate delivery times without sacrificing quality, reduce costs, enable more jobs per dispatch, and re-optimize in real time.

There are two ways users can try cuOpt. 

  • NVIDIA API catalog is an open access platform that provides an interactive way to try cuOpt with sample data via API and UI-based demos. It is best designed for audiences who may not be familiar with optimization. 
  • Another way is to get started with the route optimization AI workflow. Users can access this AI workflow on NVIDIA LaunchPad which provides short-term free access to NVIDIA’s latest hardware and software.

NVIDIA’s route optimization AI workflow helps developers address the vehicle routing problem (VRP), optimizing for cost, time, and dynamic constraints. Discover the possibilities of our AI workflow for free in NVIDIA Launchpad.

Companies that deploy a large fleet of vehicles require support processes that allow them to perform at the highest efficiency and quickly adapt to uncertainty. The route optimization workflow is a packaged solution for increasing efficiency, cost effectiveness, and the capability to adapt to dynamic constraints.

AI workflows accelerate the path to AI applications. NVIDIA's route optimization AI workflow provides a reference for practitioners, engineers, and scientists to get started building solutions that address the vehicle routing problem (VRP).

NVIDIA demonstrated how an AI Planner, an agent built on NVIDIA NIM, can enable business operations teams to chat with their supply chain data so that they can manufacture and deliver products at extraordinary scale. The AI Planner use case example is built using an LLM NIM to understand planners’ intention and direct the other models, NeMo Retriever RAG NIM to connect the LLM to proprietary data, and cuOpt for logistics optimization.

cuOpt is available as part of NVIDIA AI Enterprise. The full pricing and licensing details can be found here.

NVIDIA LaunchPad is a universal proving ground, offering expansive testing of the latest NVIDIA enterprise hardware and software. This dynamic platform expedites short-term trials, facilitates long-term proofs of concept (POCs), and fuels the accelerated development of both managed services and standalone solutions. 

Users can initiate their AI journey with a prescriptive development environment tailored to their needs. Or, they can explore a vast catalog of hands-on labs designed to offer immersive experiences across a spectrum of use cases, from AI and data science to 3D design and infrastructure optimization. Enterprises gain easy access to the latest accelerated hardware and software stacks deployed on private hosted infrastructure.

NVIDIA API catalog provides production-ready generative AI models and continually-optimized inference runtime, packaged up as microservices that can be easily deployed with standardized tools on any GPU-accelerated system.

NVIDIA AI Enterprise is an end-to-end, cloud-native software platform that accelerates data science pipelines and streamlines development and deployment of production-grade AI applications, including generative AI, computer vision, speech AI, and  more. It includes best-in-class development tools, frameworks, pretrained models, and microservices for AI practitioners and reliable management capabilities for IT professionals to ensure performance, API stability, and security.
