In this paper, we elaborate a methodology to study a particular case of collaborative network: city logistics. We identify that many solutions for urban logistics are, most of time, badly evaluated. Indeed, the theory often predicts a positive effect but the reality is most of time counterbalanced. We tried to fill this gap by making use of innovative(More)
This paper analyzes the role of horizontal collaboration (HC) concepts in urban freight transportation under uncertainty scenarios. The paper employs different stochastic variants of the well-known vehicle routing problem (VRP) in order to contrast a non-collaborative scenario with a collaborative one. This comparison allows us to illustrate the benefits of(More)
The challenge in last-mile supply chains deliveries is to maintain and improve the operational cost-effectiveness by the implementation of efficient procedures while facing increased levels of congestion in cities. One competitive alternative is Horizontal Cooperation (HC). City distribution problems under HC conditions can be modeled as multi-depot vehicle(More)
This paper studies a real-life course timetabling and classroom assignment problem found at Universidad de La Sabana, Colombia. The problem is characterized and modeled using integer linear programming. Because of its complexity in the number of decision variables and constraints, a hierarchical two-phase solution approach is proposed: course timetabling(More)
