The research project ADELE
The research project ADELE “Allocation of resources under uncertain demand in city logistics” focuses on freight transportation in urban environments and aims to mitigate the negative impacts of these activities in terms of congestion, pollution, safety, and security. In particular, one distinctive feature of ADELE is to assess the impact that a public or private central orchestrator, acting as an intermediary between shippers and carriers, can have on the efficiency of urban logistics.
The project aims to develop optimization tools to enable better use of transport resources. These tools include (1) new mathematical models for allocating transportation resources in the context of city logistics and (2) effective decision-support methods for solving these problems. Demand stochasticity will be foreseen in the decision-making to address the uncertainty inherent to transport systems.
The project is divided into several blocks:
- Demand modeling and design of forecasting methods;
- Mathematical modeling for the optimum system and optimum user cases;
- Development (design and implementation) of innovative ad-hoc optimization algorithms based on mathematical modeling;
- Validation of the solutions using scenarios defined with our industrial partner (ID Logistics).
A key deliverable for the central orchestrator will be a decision support tool able to provide several resource allocations, allowing the decision-maker to select which solution to apply among several options. This tool will be included in a demonstrator that will be presented at the INRIA of Lille’s demonstration zone and will provide the research results to the industrial partner with a view to its possible industrialization.
The project is coordinated by INRIA (Institut National de la Recherche en Informatique et Automatique), with partners LORIA (Laboratoire Lorrain de Recherche en Informatique et ses Applications), ID LOGISTIC, and TBS Education. The ANR funds this project.
The project is scheduled to run for 42 months from 1/10/2022 to 31/03/2026.
It is being led by Simon BELIERES, a researcher in the Finance, Economics and Econometrics research laboratory at TBS Education, in collaboration with Sylvia PADRON from the same laboratory.

Research article — When Is CEO Activism Conducive to the Democratic Process?
This article complements the predominantly instrumentally oriented literature on CEO activism and contributes, more broadly, to the literature that explores the normative dimensions of corporate political involvement, as well as to a growing strand of research that draws on philosophical theory to inform business leaders’ ethical decision-making.
