Understanding Complex Systems  
Online markets for transportation services, in the form of Internet sites that dynamically match shipments (shippers' demand) and transportation capacity (carriers' offer) through auction mechanisms are changing the traditional structure of transportation markets. A general framework for the study of carriers' behavior in a sequential auction transportation marketplace is provided.
