Assessing the potentialities of Physical Internet for Developing Countries Last Mile deliveries

Abstract

Developing countries are so particular as transports are often saturated, infrastructures are in poor condition and the demand is growing so fast. In such a context, the studied research question is: Does Physical Internet (PI) can improve the Last-Mile delivery performance in developing countries? And if so, how and how-much? To start answering this, the paper develops a quick literature analysis of PI solutions to identify which paradigms could bring added value to developing countries. Then, it presents a dedicated simulation-driven method able to assess the potential benefits and limits of applying PI to this specific situation. A Cambodian field-oriented case is finally presented as a very first ongoing experiment to validate the approach and a set of insights regarding further research able to deliver concrete recommendations for both practitioners and scholars is given.
