Further Investigation on Urban Cooperative Delivery Strategies at the Firm Level

A data set obtained from Treasure Valley, Idaho, which contains firm level information as well as detailed pickup/delivery tour information such the business type of every stop on the tour, enable this project to extend previous work to incorporate the critical supply chain and logistics decisions at the firm level. The Idaho data together with the night-time delivery survey data to be collected from a major grocery store chain in the Chicago region will be used to fine tune the ongoing work on urban consolidation/cooperative delivery project, in which a logistics cost model has been developed based on the Continuous Approximation (CA) method.
