A Horizontal Collaborative Approach Based on Shapley Value in the Supply Chain Distribution
Abstract— This paper addresses the problem of horizontal collaboration between carriers at the tactical
planning level of the supply chain distribution. The study focuses on the relationship between a shipper and
many carriers used to serve the transport requests of several geographically distributed customers. A profit
sharing mechanism based on game theory is proposed in order to implement win-win collaboration between
the carriers. The Shapley value is used to fairly share the profit of the grand coalition between the carriers.
The collaboration is supported by mixed-integer linear programming model for the transport planning of all
possible coalitions of carriers.
Index Terms— distribution, planning, collaboration, game theory, mixed integer linear programming.
