Abstract

Shared mobility is an emerging urban logistics solution that aims to enhance transportation efficiency by leveraging underutilized transportation resources owned by individuals. In contrast to traditional urban logistics, the transportation resources are derived from self-employed individuals rather than company employees, rendering the design of appropriate matching mechanisms a pressing issue to be addressed. From this perspective, we have conducted a comprehensive review of the relevant literature and classified the literature based on information acquisition completeness. Our findings reveal that current research lacks analysis of the supply-side behavior, consideration of specific constraints in the shared mobility context, and performance evaluation of matching mechanisms in dynamic environments.
