Abstract

Aiming to minimize transportation costs and increase supply chain effectiveness, methods, such as cross-docking, have been developed. Cross – docking enhances lean manufacturing, through minimization of time wasted, equipment, labor, thus optimizing the distribution process.

The factors that have to considered, so that cross-docking is properly implemented, are the effective products’ and information flow, the use of information technology, the distance between suppliers and their customers, the location of the cross-docking terminal, the coordination between inbound and outbound flows and the demanded quantity of goods.

Advantages of cross-docking are the decrease in overall supply chain cost, decrease in the cycle time of order, improved customer service, reduction in inventory and storage space. Nevertheless, cross-docking is not always suitable for all organizations.

The establishment of advanced, and thus expensive, information technology constitutes an obstacle. The effectiveness of cross-docking can be evaluated through simulation techniques and advanced tailor-made software, so as to meet the needs and the requirements of each company.

This paper investigates the operational aspects of a cross-docking system, by analyzing the case of a 3PL provider, operating in Thessaloniki. The aim of the paper is to discuss the effectiveness of cross docking implemented by a leading company in outsourcing. 

 

Keywords:

cross- docking, lean manufacturing, shipment, 3PL providers.
