Consistent Consolidation Strategies in Grocery Retail Distribution

Abstract
In the food retail sector, maintaining the food quality across the supply chain is of vital importance. The quality of the products is dependent on its storage and transportation conditions and this peculiarity increases the supply chain complexity relatively to other types of retailers. Actually, in this industry there are three types of food supply chains: frozen, chilled and ambient. Moreover, food retailers run different store formats, of different sizes, assortments and sales volume. In this study we research the trade-off between consolidating a range of products in order to perform direct deliveries to the stores versus performing separate delivery routes for products with different transportation requirements. A new consistency dimension is proposed regarding the periodicity that a consolidation strategy is implemented. The aim of this paper is to define a consolidation strategy for the delivery mode planning that allows to smooth the complexity of grocery retail operations. A three-step approach is proposed to tackle a real size problem in a case-study with a major Portuguese grocery retailer. By changing the consolidation strategy with a complete consistent plan the company could reach annual savings of around 4%. © 2019, Springer Nature Switzerland AG.

Consistent vehicle routing problem with service level agreements: A case study in the pharmaceutical distribution sector

Abstract
In this paper, a mathematical model is developed to tackle a Consistent Vehicle Routing Problem, which considers customers with multiple daily deliveries and different service level agreements such as time windows, and release dates. In order to solve this problem, an instance size reduction algorithm and a mathematical programming based decomposition approach are developed. This solution approach is benchmarked against a commercial solver. Results indicate that the method solves instances of large size, enabling its application to real-life scenarios. A case study in a pharmaceutical distribution company is analyzed. Consistent routes are planned for several warehouses, comprising hundreds of orders. A simulation model evaluates the performance of the generated route plans. Significant improvements in terms of the total distance traveled and the total travel times are obtained when compared to the company's current planning process. © 2018 Elsevier B.V.

FOREST POLICY AND ECONOMICS

Abstract
When it was first introduced, the concept of sustainability in the forestry sector had a narrow focus on sustainable wood production. Since then, this concept has evolved and it now considers now the three sustainability dimensions (economic, environmental and social) of the whole forest wood supply chain. The main objective of this study is then to review assessment and optimization studies that consider the forest wood supply chain and at least one of the sustainability dimensions. To accomplish this goal, a total number of 188 papers, published in English-speaking peer-reviewed journals from 1995 to 2017, were reviewed. These papers have been classified according to the sustainability dimensions explored, the stakeholder's involvement, the modeling approaches applied, the supply chain decision levels treated, the uncertainty inclusion, and case study analyzed. Most of the studies reviewed (84.6%) considered only two sustainability dimensions: economic (31.9%), environmental (13.8%), or a combination of both (38.8%). The first study including the three sustainability dimensions was published in 2005. Most of the studies reviewed (64.9%) focus on the bioenergy industry in Europe and North America, due to the growing interest in using biomass to substitute fossil fuels in energy production. The final part of the paper presents the identified specific features of sustainable forest wood supply chains and discusses a future research agenda in the area.
