Abstrakt

Despite the negative consequences on society and
environment, urban freight transport is critical for the
prosperity of the city. Decision makers have considered the
horizontal collaboration between carriers as a solution to reduce
the total transportation cost and the related negative impacts. In
literature, the collaborative freight delivery is modelled as a
Multi-Depot Vehicle Routing Problem (MDVRP) that can be
solved by being decomposed into two sub-problems, i.e.
assignment problem and a set of vehicle routing problems. The
assignment problem allocates customers to the nearest depots
while vehicle routing problem determines the optimal routes to
serve customers assigned to each depot. However, most of
existing approaches didn’t consider the interrelation between
these two sub-problems, which in turn impairs the solution
quality of the overall problem. This paper presents an improved
two-level mathematical modelling approach to evaluate and
optimize the implementation of the collaborative distribution in
urban area. Unlike existing studies, the proposed approach
considers the interrelation among the two-sub problems. A reallife case is used to illustrate the savings obtained from the
collaborative distribution. In addition, the significance of the
proposed approach is demonstrated by a comparison against a
similar approach found in literature.
