Abstract:

The paper begins with a description about the services of electronic freight and warehouse exchanges currently available on the Internet, then, continues to point out their shortcomings. Based on this, it demonstrates the participants, the aims, the structure and the services of a logistically and economically ideal electronic freight and warehouse exchange system. Then it presents the e-commerce toolbar (catalogue, tenders, auctions), which gives the framework of choosing. It emphasises the application of a self-developed multi-criteria decision supporting algorithm (based on AHP – Analytic Hierarchy Process -) in the assessment of offers received for tender. The paper describes one optimum search problem emerging in electronic freight and warehouse exchanges, then presents, in details, the ant colony algorithm (BA_ACO) for its solution (to support the complex logistics processes). The demonstration of the modules and operational process of this system is done with the help of self-developed VBA-based (Visual Basic Application) algorithms.
