Brief description Increasingly there is a tendency around the world for logistics companies that provide transport and warehousing services to band together to share their physical resources so they can extend their reach beyond their current region of operation. When this is coupled with internet ordering and status monitoring one has an e-logistics company that is a virtual logistics provider that gives access to these shared resources. Such a virtual collaborative logistics consortium requires very strong partner-to-partner IT support and communication. This project investigates the use of XML (Extensible Mark-up Language) enabled mobile software agents to provide this support.
