Simulation of logistics in food retailing for freight transportation analysis (Dissertation)
Karlsruher Institut für Technologie (KIT): Karlsruhe, Germany, (2010).
Abstract: The study contributes to fill the gap between freight transportation analysis and logistic research. It describes the model SYNTRADE, a simulation model that reproduces logistic structures in the German food retailing sector. Logistic decisions and their interdependencies are simulated based on heuristics from the field of logistic optimization. The model provides the possibility to analyze changes in logistics and freight transport demand on a company, as well as on an overall sector level. http://digbib.ubka.uni-karlsruhe.de/volltexte/1000020602Show all publications
