A competitive solution for cooperative truckload delivery
Hezarkhni, Behzad and Slikker, Marco and Van Woensel, Tom (2015) A competitive solution for cooperative truckload delivery. OR Spectrum, 38 (1). pp. 51-80. ISSN 1436-6304
This paper introduces a solution for gain sharing in consortia of logistic providers where joint planning of truckload deliveries enables the reduction of empty kilometers. The highly competitive nature of freight transport markets necessitates solutions that distinguish among the logistics providers based on their characteristics, even in situations with two players only. We introduce desirable properties in these situations and propose a solution that satisfies such properties. By comparing the existing solutions against the introduced properties we demonstrate the advantages of our proposed solution.
