Transport Service of a Cargo Consolidation Centre with Respect to Logistics Service of Urban Agglomerations

A solution to a distribution system in an urban agglomeration, in which the transport service is performed by a Cargo Consolidation Center (CCC) is presented in this paper. The model proposed in the paper aims at reducing cargo traffic in the urban area by coordinating traffic flows and eliminating empty runs. After reviewing the issues relating to distribution systems with reference to urban logistics, a mathematical approach to the supply problem is identified. Therefore, the formalization of input data, constraints, and criterion function notation was performed. On this basis, an optimization task for the distribution of goods in the urban agglomeration was formed. The final section of the paper is the presentation of solutions to the analyzed case study, in which the problem was solved with the use of computer-aided methods.
