There is a high cost in maritime logistics of supply chain of fruit and vegetable, so it is necessary to optimize and research the node distribution of marine logistics network in the fruit and vegetable supply chain. The current method has a problem about high cost. Therefore, this paper proposes an optimization method of distribution of maritime logistic network nodes in the fruit and vegetable supply chain based on the improved ant colony algorithm. Firstly, this method built the problem model of distribution optimization of logistics node, and used the improved ant colony algorithm for optimizing node distribution of maritime logistics, and then solved the objective function value. Under the constraint conditions, our method optimized the final result so as to complete the distribution optimization of maritime logistics network nodes on the supply chain of fruits and vegetables. Experimental result shows that the cost of the method proposed in this paper is low.
