This chapter presents the results of a project known as Aires de Livraison du Futur (ALF) conducted by three academic research teams namely, LIRIS SILEX, LIRIS GrAMA and LET, two SMEs- Interface Transport and SEMCO, one large group-Volvo and a local authority-Grand Lyon. Delivery services are increasing due to just-in-time management, the development of e-commerce and the emergence of new customer behaviors. Delivery areas were created to improve delivery drivers' work, decrease congestion and facilitate freight delivery to professional and private customers. The just-in-time service ensures the requirements of each customer are met by providing the type and quantity of goods when and as they need them. The chapter develops the following three main solutions to the problem, namely SyGAL, Guided CESNA and CEMAVIL. The Guided CESNA is based on dynamic negotiation of delivery areas between agents, where agents represent drivers, and delivery areas represent resources to be shared.
