Gerritsen, Anouk (author)
This paper investigates how two sequential sub-processes at a flower auction can be well aligned to efficiently execute the overall auction process. Existing literature mainly focuses on warehouses without perishable goods and warehouses where all orders are known before the outbound process is started. However, at a flower auction, the...

Background: Increased maritime trade has led to a surge in drayage operations, causing congestion and environmental issues in port areas. Truck Appointment Systems (TASs) are commonly used to manage truck arrival rates, yet transparency and equity in slot allocation remain problematic, fostering distrust between Licensed Motor Carriers (LMCs)...

This research addresses the process of task allocation in a heterogeneous multi-agent fleet through the introduction of a novel mechanism in existing decentralised consensus algorithms: bid intercession. Bid intercession refers to the principle of agents biding on behalf of other agents in decision-making architectures leveraging market-based...

This paper studies the multi-robot task assignment problem in which a fleet of dispersed robots needs to efficiently transport a set of dynamically appearing packages from their initial locations to corresponding destinations within prescribed time-windows. Each robot can carry multiple packages simultaneously within its capacity. Given a...

The adoption of new market mechanisms - vital to the better integration of flexible assets - depends on the fairness and nondiscrimination of the pricing rules. We consider a market setting with time-flexible unit energy buyers and sellers, that additionally submit their availability in time. The time-flexibility of the agents allows for...

Double auctions are procedures to trade commodities such as electricity or parts of the wireless spectrum at optimal prices. Buyers and sellers inform the auctioneer what quantity they want to buy or sell at specific prices. The auctioneer aggregates these offers into demand and supply curves and finds the intersection representing the...

Inspired by the vision of fully autonomous airside operations at Schiphol airport, this study aims to contribute to the short-term goal of automated aircraft ground handling. In this research, we design and evaluate a multi-agent system for planning of automated ground handling. There are two main components in the system, task allocation...

Double Auctions are mechanisms to trade commodities such as electricity or parts of the wireless spectrum at optimal prices. Bidders and sellers simultaneously submit quantity-price pairs to an auctioneer, denoting the quantity they want to buy or sell at specific prices. The auctioneer aggregates the offers into demand and supply curves to...

Carriers can remarkably reduce transportation costs and emissions when they collaborate, for example through a platform. Such gains, however, have only been investigated for relatively small problem instances with low numbers of carriers. We develop auction-based methods for large-scale dynamic collaborative pickup and delivery problems,...

We consider a fundamental pricing problem in combinatorial auctions. We are given a set of indivisible items and a set of buyers with randomly drawn monotone valuations over subsets of items. A decision maker sets item prices and then the buyers make sequential purchasing decisions, taking their favorite set among the remaining items. We...

Collaboration in transportation is important to reduce costs and emissions, but carriers may have incentives to bid strategically in decentralized auction systems. We investigate what the effect of the auction strategy is on the possible cheating benefits in a dynamic context, such that we can recommend a method with lower chances for...

The trends of autonomous transportation and mobility on demand in line with large numbers of requests increasingly call for decentralized vehicle routing optimization. Multi-agent systems (MASs) allow to model fully autonomous decentralized decision making, but are rarely considered in current decision support approaches. We propose a multi...

This report details the design process of a process performance measurement system for zero-defects logistics, with a focus on process quality. The system is the result of a combination of theoretical sources and best practices found in various industries. The final design is applied on the distribution process of cut flowers at Royal...

Increased competitiveness with other transport systems and declining operation margins have motivated freight forwarders in the air cargo transport industry to look into horizontal collaboration. This paper focuses on developing a fully integrated five-phase auction-based coopetition model, a form of horizontal collaboration where competition is...

Designing auction parameters for online industrial auctions is a complex problem due to highly heterogeneous items. Currently, online auctioneers rely heavily on their experts in auction design. The ability of predicting how well an auction will perform prior to the start comes in handy for auctioneers. If an item is expected to be a low...

Increasing electricity production from renewable energy sources has, by its fluctuating nature, created the need for more flexible demand side management. How to integrate flexible demand in the electricity system is an open research question. We consider the case of procuring the energy needs of a time-shiftable load through a set of...

While collaborative vehicle routing has a significant potential to reduce transportation costs and emissions, current approaches are limited in terms of applicability, unrealistic assumptions, and low scalability. Centralized planning generally assumes full information and full control, which is often unacceptable for individual carriers....

In order to reduce CO2 emissions, energy systems using different energy carriers (e.g., heat and power) are becoming more intertwined and integrated. However, coordination between non-cooperative participants of these systems in the combined heat and power domain has been limited to single-sided auctions with one centralised seller. In this...

For this project, JEM-id tasked us with creating a proof of concept of a new online auction in the form of a web application for Royal FloraHolland. JEM-id is a software company operating in the agricultural domain.<br/>The pre-existing digital auction is not available as a web application and has generated technical debt over the past twenty...
