1.Decision-making on Food Cold Chain Collaborative Distribution Models
Abstract: Carrying out food cold chain (FCC) collaborative distribution (co-distribution) is an efficient way to solve lack infrastructure, high cost and low efficiency on food cold chain distribution system. It can integrate transportation, warehousing, human resources. On this paper collaborative distribution models was classified to three categories, six subclasses by their social relationship, partnership and leading status. Based on the classification, collaborative distribution models decide principles and decision-making process for the third-party cold chain logistics companies and shippers enterprise was given respectively, to help companies select the appropriate cold chain collaborative distribution model.

2.Study on the Inventory Control of Deteriorating Items Under VMI Model Based on Bi-level Programming
Abstract: We studied the inventory control of deteriorating items for suppliers under VMI model. The cost structure and the optional strategies for this model were first discussed. Bi-level programming models of integrated delivery strategies were established. We introduced the genetic algorithm to solve the problem. Finally the merit and demerit of each model and the adaptability were analyzed.

3.Establishing Food Traceability System Based on Game Theory：from the Perspective of Retailers
Abstract: Retail terminal is a weak link of the whole food supply chain in establishing the food traceability system, and also a key link in realizing traceability food value. This paper firstly analyzes the influence factors of retails adopting food traceability technology, then makes a game model to analyze three situations: non-government subsidy; the same government subsidy for adopting the traceability technology and higher subsidy for who adopts the system first. According to the analysis, the conclusion is drawn: it is unrealistic to ask all of retails to adopt food traceability technology; corresponding policy should be made to inspire a part of retails adopting the system first.
