Freight distribution based on delivery area booking

Abstract : In this paper we present the results of a project known as ALF (Aires de Livraison du Futur, Next Generation Delivery Areas) conducted by three academic research teams, two SMEs, one large group and a local authority. Its goal was to increase the use of delivery areas by prior booking and dynamic adjustment, if necessary. Information technologies with mobile communicating devices and in-roadway sensors are used in front of the information management process system. We present in turn: the problem and the methodology; ICT system architecture and human interaction-based delivery round preparation based on delivery area booking and real-time adjustment; a computational process using distributed multi-agent based negotiation, allowing static delivery round preparation and dynamic adjustments of such rounds, if necessary; an in-the-street information system. The conclusion summarizes the main configurations of the proposed system, presents different mutualization and pooling approaches, and lists various innovative services which can be added to delivery areas.
