In future warehouses, conveyors will operate autonomously and cooperative to fulfill transportation  demands. The research project CogniLog is working towards novel cooperation strategies for continuous and discontinuous  conveyors applied in warehousing scenarios. Each of these technological items is part of the decision making process  on different hierarchical levels according to the complexity of the decision. The essence of CogniLog is to address  the challenge, how autonomous subsystems can cooperate in a network, which is able to solve tasks a single subsystem could not, thus gaining cognitive capabilities. Key challenges are the heterogeneity of the subsystems and the dependable  observability of material flows. This contribution will show approaches to overcome these challenges by using a decentralized  system. Moreover, the distributed decision making process on the conveyor level, which consists of a large number of  subsystems, will be addressed.
