The logistic pooling is not just a standard solution. It can take many forms and is a solution adopted by some players to reduce problems in the goods flow optimization on some territories, especially in towns under constraints. This research analyses the role played by geographic constraints in the logistic pooling implementation on a certain territory. The geographic constraints impacts territory accessibility to individuals and goods and create different levels of pressure. Depending on how each actor evaluates such a pressure, they develop different strategies with varying levels of collaboration and different types of logistics pooling.
