Conference paper
Part of the Proceedings of the I-ESA Conferences book series (IESACONF, volume 7)


Freight transport is an essential element of our economy. It allows the goods to travel from their production place to customers. In France this activity implies many companies. Most of them are very little ones and are threatened by the economic crisis. This article studies how collaborative approach allow those companies finding solution to improve their performances. We simulate different scenarios which highlight benefits in particular in dynamic context when a last minute unforeseen change occurs. As interoperability is essential for collaboration implementation, companies must integrate its dimension in their development policy.
