Title
Estimating collaborative profits under varying partner characteristics and strategie
Author
Abstract
Horizontal logistic collaboration leads to large prots when the right coalition is formed. Most of the previous research however explains the prot dierences using market conditions on coalitional level. We show that the level of prot is highly dependent on nding a correct combi- nation of partners. By estimating a model using the average order size, number of orders and maximal delay of each partner separately, as well as the interaction eects of these parameters, the possible number of prof- itable situations that can be identied signicantly increases. Finally, it is demonstrated that cost allocation plays an important role when selecting a partner to collaborate with.
