Collaborative and Sustainable Network Design in Courier Services


While the courier service demand has been continuously increasing over the last decade, the unit price has been dropping due to the more severe competition among the courier services. The courier service companies with low market share are making several types of efforts to survive in competitive market. Collaboration via the economy of sharing can allow the courier service companies to extend their service network and increase the market share. This study suggests a collaboration model to increase the competitiveness of every participating company. In addition, a nucleolus-based profit allocation method is applied for fair allocation of the profits to each participating company based on a cooperative game theory. An illustrative example problem demonstrates the applicability and efficiency of the proposed model.
