Impacts of Proximity Deliveries on e-Grocery Trips

Abstract : This paper proposes a discussion of three scenarios related to French e-grocery developments, in order to identify and analyze the impacts of new forms of proximity deliveries on households' shopping trip flows. One of our objectives will be to consider logistics solutions adopted by online retailers. Firstly, we present the two basic models of B2C: order-picking on a dedicated site and in-store picking. Secondly, we evaluate three distribution systems adopted by French e-grocery retailers. We focus in particular on the impact of these systems on consumers' purchasing trips and, to this end, we will use an empirical simulation approach to make a comparison of the systems studied.
