Competitive Facility Location with Competition of Customers

Abstract [en]

The research work dealing with the competitive location problems is limited only to the competition among the locators, that is, it is supposed that either both the locator and the allocator are the same or the customer knows the optimality criterion of the locator and agrees passively with it. Customers preferences as well as externalities (such as road congestion, facility congestion, emissions, etc.) caused by the location decisions are either ignored or “controlled” by incorporating constraints in order to “ensure” the achievement of a predetermined target. However, this approach treats customers as irresolute beings. Thus, if, for example, the customers travel to the facilities to obtain the offered service, then there is no compulsion or incentive for them to attend the designated facility. This means that, once the facilities are open, what the locator wishes the customers to do may not coincide with their own wish and behavior.
