Abstract

Inter-organizational networks are the subject of numerous research projects, which explore not only the importance of companies within a network, its impact on the companies, and the ties between the actors, but also the structure of networks. Due to the rapidly changing environment of organizations, the need arises for an analysis of the dynamics of networks, which can be performed using Dynamic Network Analysis (DNA). The aim of the paper is to propose the use of this method for the analysis of network ties occurring in electronic freight exchange. For this purpose, a model was developed and implemented in a simulation environment. On the basis of selected scenarios, a simulation experiment was carried out. The authors present the most important conclusions from the statistical analysis of the experiments.
