dc.description.abstractThe seminar will introduce City Logistics and describe recent models developed for improving the sustainability of goods movement in Melbourne, including a collaborative freight system for suppliers distributing goods to retailers as well as a Central Business District (CBD) routing system for couriers. Distribution systems in metropolitan regions are typically characterized by suppliers operating their own vehicle fleets, distributing only their goods to their customers on a regular basis. In sectors where there are multiple suppliers servicing common customers, there is an opportunity to develop collaborative systems and combine distribution networks to reduce the distance traveled by delivery vehicles. This can result in substantial savings in transport operating costs as well as environmental costs.en_US
