Abstract
The German market for parcel service providers has been growing more than the GDP for the last 20 years. Forecasts expect the market growth to continue. Increasing e-commerce sales is one major factor for this development. Parcel service providers have to adapt their existing networks to the increasing quantity of parcels. For this reason, tools for analyzing the impacts of an increasing quantity of parcels on current and future parcel networks are required. This paper presents hierarchical mesoscopic simulation models to support analyzing and planning tasks for parcel service provider networks.
