The Price of Anarchy for Centralising or Decentralising Freight Transport Organisation Through Serious Gaming

Abstract : Centralisation and decentralisation are the two common organisations in freight transport. The first relies on a central authority who optimises and establishes transport plans for all carriers for global-interest, while the second lets carriers optimise their own transport plans for their self-interest. The outcome-efficiency and effectiveness-could be different. This paper aims to use the concept of Price of Anarchy (PoA) to compare the outcome of the two organisations. Due to the complexity of actual freight transport market, this paper adapts the gamification methodology to investigate the two organisations. A freight transport game was developed for simulation. The outcome of the two simulated organisations-centralisation or decentralisation-are then compared. The results show that the centralisation outperforms in terms of global efficiency and effectiveness; while decentralisation is better individual incentive. However, the PoA varies depending on information revealed. Copyright © 2019 IFAC
