Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to quantify the performance improvement potential of foliated transportation networks (FTN) compared to a traditional direct shipment network (DS) with respect to key performance indicators (KPI). The network models are evaluated through discrete event simulation. Input data and parameters have been drawn from a case company. The concept of FTN is shown to reduce the negative environmental impact of a transportation network through its implementation. This is the first study that quantifies the potential of FTN. Furthermore, the study is based on empirical data.
