Increased customization of products and their delivery has brought about a fundamental shift in the economical landscape: from markets that were predominantly controlled by sellers to markets that are now driven by buyers and their demands. The concept of autonomous logistic processes intends to overcome these drawbacks together with latest information and communication technologies. The I&C technologies enabling communication for autonomous logistic processes are presented, such as a communication gateway using infrastructure and sensor networks as well as agent technology and distributed algorithms. The algorithms are evaluated using a simulation environment specifically designed to model the relationship between autonomous logistic processes and their communication environment.
