Abstract

• Purpose
The purpose of the study is to propose a framework for fleet management and make suitable distribution solution choices in the food industry.
• Design/Methodology/Approach
This study reviews the literature to examine food distribution criteria. These criteria are used in the AHP assessment and combined with discrete events simulation in a structured framework, which is validated through an empirical study.
• Findings
The empirical case results demonstrate that both the analytic hierarchy process (AHP) and discrete events simulation converge toward the same solution in most cases.
• Originality
This study contributes to the literature on distribution management and develops a framework that can both guide future research and aid logistics practitioners in analysing distribution decision-making systems in dynamic environments.
