Airfreight forwarding is becoming more important with the increase of international trade. For an international company, sometimes, it would have several branches associating with different airports in the same region. When a branch is overloaded, nearby branches of different airports can offer help and share the workload. A framework of agents has been proposed to support collaborative cargo packing for multi-sites in the same region. Besides defining a set of XML message exchange standards in the framework, a core component is the packing module which is supported by RFID tags with information encoded. This paper discusses how to apply First Fit Decreasing and Best Fit Decreasing for packing airfreight cargoes and their preliminary performance.
