The increasing parcel demand is resulting in increasing traffic congestion and emission problems in urban freight system. Crowdshipping service is an innovative logistics solution which envisions using the excess capacity in existing passenger transport to perform the delivery tasks. However, it may bring extra vehicle kilometres travelled due...

In the context of striving for zero emissions in cities in the future, finding new logistics methods is of paramount importance. Inspired by the concept of the Physical Internet, a parcel transportation method called ”crowdshipping” has begun to gain attention. In this study, a new form of crowdshipping is investigated, where parcel lockers are...

The growth of e-commerce has increased the demand for last-mile delivery. This increased demand<br/>poses the sector of last-mile delivery with challenges such as traffic congestion, route optimization and environmental concerns. Delivery to a Service Point or a Parcel Locker, self-collection alternatives, have to potential to address these...

Autonomous delivery robots are a promising alternative for last-mile delivery. To realise successful implementation of delivery robots in the public space, it is important to study the interaction between robot and environment. The traffic environment includes the physical infrastructure, traffic conditions and the people using the environment....

Urban freight transport is a significant cause of CO2 emissions. This creates the need to implement CO2 mitigation measures for freight transport in cities. The International Transport Forum (ITF) is currently working on an EU-funded programme, the Decarbonising Transport initiative, to assess CO2 mitigation measures. However, there is no model...

This thesis explores the possibilities to improve order allocation for petrol delivery with the aim to lower the travel distances. In this research a simulation model has been designed that can test different order pairing strategies for fuel delivery to petrol stations. The Multi–Period Split Compartment Vehicle Routing Problem with Time...
