Keywords: tail lift, heavy truck, pneumatics, unloading system, air motor


The article is devoted to the problem of the flow of goods in the transport network. Ante algorithms have been used for this purpose. An optimization model based on the problem (Quadratic Assignment Problem - QAS) was built. Eight different ant algorithms were select-ed. The results of the application of ant algorithms for solving the problem of the flow of goods rationalization are presented and dis-cussed..
