Abstract
The main purpose of this research is to develop decision-support models given the advent of on-demand distribution systems. On-demand distribution platforms match companies with underutilized warehouse and distribution center (DC) capacities with customers who need extra space or fulfillment services. These systems provide unique advantages, but also have different cost structures and risks. Therefore, a company interested in adopting these new systems must consider new dynamics, which requires new knowledge and methods for the design and operations of distribution networks.
