Optimization of Seafood Cold Chain Distribution Path Based on Ant Colony Algorithm

Jialu Ren, Guang Yang


Based on the policy environment of carbon neutralization and carbon peak, in order to ensure the high quality and freshness of seafood, this paper constructs the seafood cold chain distribution path optimization model from the perspectives of carbon emission, distribution vehicle transportation and seafood loss. The results show that when the information heuristic factor α= 1. Expected heuristic factor β= 4. Pheromone volatilization factorρ=0.75, the number of ant colony m=100, pheromone intensity coefficient q=3, Nf=1, Nmax=400, the iteration tends to be stable at 250.
