Spatial economies in distribution transports
Unit costs of distribution transport (depot --> customer) are studied using a simulator. Petroleum companies with four spatial distribution parameters--size (= market share), market area, depot pattern and customer structure--are used as observations. Relevant combinations of the parameters are evaluated with real world data. The unexpectedly small differences between alternatives appear to be due to the dominance of a single urban agglomeration.
