Hub and spoke policy vs a dense web of connections

This is interesting to think how par cel service can guarantee a 24h delivery to any country in Europe. To do that they usually consolidate everything in one point and then send it to the nearest distribution center, like what appears on the following image

But to do that there are different options:

  • A spoke-hub distribution paradigm:”a system of connections arranged like a chariot wheel, in which all traffic moves along spokes connected to the hub at the center. The model is commonly used in industry, in particular in transport, telecommunications and freight, as well as in distributed computing”. Example: TNT
  • Web connections: Used by DHL and connects point to point destinations without a central distribution center.
