How do apartment exchanges work?

The title says it all really...

I'm looking to move, and I keep on finding adverts for an 'exchange'. Today I've found one where it seems I have what the other person is looking for and they have what I'm looking for.

But how does it work? I rent my property from a landlord, via a rental agency. How can I 'exchange' my flat - from my understanding the landlord picks the new tenant, not me! And vice versa.

Apologies if this is a really really stupid question... am I missing something here?

Thanks for any clarification.
