Abstract:This research investigates business internal carsharing [BICS], a concept where businesses replace the idea of having one leasing car per employee by having a pool of cars which all employees can flexibly share with each other through bookings. One incentive for the businesses is to make business related car ownership and travel more efficient. BICS already makes a step in the right direction, since cars are assumed to stand still less than in the traditional leasing situation. However, the underlying assumption for this research is that BICS at this point does not capitalize its full potential. Therefore, the case of a specific BICS concept is analyzed to reveal the current inefficiencies, which arise from a high disparity of the utilization between peak and low moments. The research further investigates opportunities to reduce the inefficiencies and how revenue management concepts could be of help for a possible implementation. Benefits of a possible implementation are shown, and the feasibility of such implementation is discussed.
