Urban delivery pooling: what are the impacts on costs and congestion?

Abstract : This paper presents a framework for the analysis of logistics pooling among transport carriers based on residual capacity management, in the context of urban delivery logistics. First, an overview is presented of the different forms of logistics collaboration, cooperation, pooling and sharing to set up the context of this study : logistics sharing among urban delivery carriers. After that, a framework is proposed for analysing the impacts of logistics pooling and the main assumptions, and the analytical method for estimating the impacts of logistics pooling. Then, the assessment of five scenarios of logistics pooling is presented to illustrate the proposed framework. Finally, the results are presented and the suitability and development issues of urban logistics pooling are discussed.
