Abstract

Current market figures from Europe seem to indicate that recently introduced free-floating car sharing (FFCS) systems can be a breakthrough for the car sharing idea. Regardless of their success, FFCS systems face significant regional demand fluctuations, raising the need for vehicle relocations with novel requirements for the product-service system (PSS). This study aims to introduce an integrated decision support approach for cost and emission efficient vehicle relocation in FFCS based on real-world data from car2go. The proposed approach appears to be effective and have a significant potential to reduce costs and related emissions.
