Collaboration among small shippers in a transportation market
Yilmaz, Ozhan; Savaşaneril Tüfekci, Seçil (2012-04-16)
Intense competition in markets is pushing companies to increase their operational efficiency. One possible way to achieve increased efficiency is through cooperation with other companies. We study the coalition formation among small shippers in a transportation market characterized by uncertain demand. We analyze the decisions taken by the coalition and study the effect of shipper characteristics on the benefit of collaboration. Analysis shows that the shippers always benefit from the coalition, but when th...

Today, mitigating CO2 emissions consists one of the fundamental missions of the humankind. One such task is to reduce the global energy demand. Enhancing efficiency, recycling, promoting behavioral changes to reduce energy demanding act...

In this article, we adopt a game-theoretical approach to study the interaction between two firms who procure jointly, but produce independently and remain competitors in a product market characterized by price-sensitive demand. We study the underlying economics behind collaborative procurement, examine the effects of collaboration on buyer and supplier profitability, and derive ...
