Companies are dependent on the resources and information of other members of the supply chains. To manage their resources, companies use coordination mechanisms. Despite the inter-dependency between logistics actors, they are independent units with conflicting objectives. These two characteristics can increase the complexity of planning in logistics networks. According to the literature of supply chain management, some mechanisms largely use the information shared by members to achieve an optimal solution and some others are based on minimum level of information sharing. This chapter addresses the coordination problem in a logistics networks with more than two partners, while the information is in a private element that is not exchanged with other partners.
