Abstract in another language

This work investigates whether platform services that combine mobile food hubs and crowd logistics, i.e., mobile transshipment nodes and occasional drivers, can provide growth opportunities (e.g., faster product adoption) for micro, small, and medium-sized enterprises (MSMEs) in short food supply chains. To this end, a decision support system based on simulation optimization is introduced. The simulation builds on agent-based simulation and system dynamics elements to help understand if and how these platform services can facilitate product adoption and enable entrepreneurs in the food sector. Using simulation optimization, it can be determined what MSMEs should consider participation and how mobile food hub operations should be scheduled.
