AbstractReducing air pollutant emissions is a way to shorten the environmental footprint. We show that horizontal cooperation in road transportation can be useful to reduce the delivery costs and, at the same time, pollutant emissions. The results obtained with our proposal are shown more complete than the traditional ones without environmental aspects, minimizing simultaneously pollutant emissions and delivery costs.
