I am studying efficient exchange mechanisms for shipper-carrier negotiations in the spot market. I am trying to use game theoretic models to develop strategies for shippers' and carriers'(truckload carriers, that is those that lease vehicles as a whole) participation in the exchange.
The problem is more complex than a fundamental auction problem because of the network effects that introduce economies of scale and scope into the problem.
I am looking for any relevant materials/insight into the problem.
