Abstract : Collaborative supply chains have become recently an important element for many companies to improve their supply chain efficiency. Moreover, to be competitive in industrial world, the implementation of collaborative supply chains should give positive effect that can be related to sustainable development. In this paper, we deal with collaboration among shippers in less than truckload transportation. We propose a mixed-integer linear model to pool supply chains by adding two hubs between suppliers and customers in order to reduce the distance and consequently the greenhouse gas emissions. In addition in the model, we allow multi-picking and multi-delivering to optimize the filling rates of the trucks. This model is tested with a case study with real data from two agri-food companies delivering customers all over Europe. With this model, we are able to reduce the total distance travelled and the total amount of emissions.
