Specifying Self-organising Logistics System: openness, intelligence, and decentralised control

Abstract : This paper contributes to the development of a novel paradigm in logistics , i.e. self-organising logistics system (SoLS). A SoLS can be considered as a logistics system that can function without significant intervention by human , and without central control by software. It is functioning based on contex-tual local interactions. By such definition, SoLS could be a powerful solution to manage nowadays logistics that is much larger and complex than ever before. The goal of this paper is to provide a comprehensive and in-depth discussion to specify expected advantages and functionalities of SoLS, supported by some recent emerging concepts and technologies. The paper also attempts to provide a theoretical framework for the future work.
