A New Supply Service Model for Retail Delivery Businesses

Abstract


This study proposed a new delivery model that reduces both the company’s delivery cost and the customer’s stock cost, without any inconvenience to customers. Today, the retailing company offers red-carpet delivery services such as high-frequency and short lead-time delivery, leading to high operational costs and environmental burdens. So the transportation sector requires service companies to be environmentally friendly while maintaining delivery quality.
