ABSTRACT
This article is the third in a series on the 3DayCar project. It asks whether current outbound logistics is capable of coping with delivering vehicles in 24 hours throughout Great Britain. To manage the transport capacity effectively, the logistics company needs to know in advance, the type and size of car, number of cars for each location and when they are to be delivered. Research by the 3DayCar team has identified a number of vital factors which must be resolved before a delivery regime of this sort can be implemented. These are information for planning, consideration of damage, and capacity of fleets. Other operational constraints are the fluctuations in overall volume, the difference in the size of cars and the dealer opening times.The environment is of growing importance to logistics operations. In future it will be seen as having significant impact in terms of constraints and additional costs.
