Integrated Grid Management is proposed as a model to remodel and integrate the current system of dispersed computational resources for agricultural products distribution. Using FlexSim to simulate the model, the effectiveness of this alternative grid management model is demonstration through reduced queue length, waiting time and better resource utilization. Finally, suggestions on the policy level were put forward regarding how to realize improved efficiency of logistics resources utilization and thus, the sustainable development of the agricultural logistics sector.
