Abstract : Delivering manufacturing goods from production platforms to demand zones is often managed through one or more intermediate locations where storage, transhipment and consolidation activities are performed. When distribution activities cover a large geographical area, depending on hierarchical inventory rules, or concerning urban deployment, multi-echelon network configurations are more appropriate [1]. This type of configuration allows considerable savings compared to direct deliveries from one main depot : intermediate location help to reduce the many freight vehicles going into cities.
