Abstract

This paper presents a mathematical model for the problem of designing not cooperative supply chain where the logistic service providers take part. In this problem, manufacturers are not collaborating or having any type of bargaining strategy among them, they compete for supplying products to retailers seeking to maximize their profit. Logistics service providers also compete among them for providing logistics services to manufacturers and delivering products to retailers. It is considered that manufacturers, logistics service providers and retailers collaborate to maximize services. Normally this problem can not be modeled as an optimization problem and we use a variational inequality approach to formulate it. The model determines the optimal level of production for each manufacturer, the flows of products between manufacturers and retailers, the flow of products each logistics service provider is going to move and the price retailers are willing to pay to manufacturer in a non-cooperative environment. We demonstrate and discuss theory results regarding existence and uniqueness of the solution for the model. An example is presented to illustrate some properties of the problem.
