Abstract

The basic function of electronic freight and warehouse exchanges is to establish connection between free freight and storage capacities and tasks [6]. In the database of such online fairs there is high number of freight and storage capacity offers and tasks, which provides good optimization opportunity for those with free capacity. Based on all these this essay describes two optimum search problems emerging in electronic freight and warehouse exchanges, then presents, in details, the ant colony algorithms for their solution, which then compares with other known solution possibilities.
