Résumé

Logistics networks intensely use means of transport and storage facilities to deliver goods all around the world. ‎However they are still poorly interconnected and this fragmentation is responsible for a lack of consolidation and ‎thus efficiency. To cope with challenging emissions targets, an improvement by an order of magnitude in supply ‎networks is sought. This is the purpose of the Physical Internet. If from a logical point of view, this concept should ‎improve efficiency by merging flows, no demonstration of its potential has yet been carried out based on real-world ‎flows. To reach this goal, we used flows from the Fast Moving Consumer Goods sector (FMCG) in France and a model ‎of interconnected logistics networks to simulate their routing. Unlike vehicle routing problems, flow routing is a new ‎research field. Routing is therefore proposed based on a combination of knapsack algorithm to fill transportation ‎means and of shortest path to minimize travelled distances. Various routing protocols and scenarios were tested and ‎encouraging results were measured according to sustainability indicators such as CO2 emissions, energy used, cost, ‎lead-time, delivery time, and so forth. As this is a first work in the field of routing flows, the simulation model also ‎suggests potential improvements.‎
