Abstract

This paper describes the methodology applicable to temporary storage in Cross Docking centers using a mathematical model. This model favors the dynamic allocation of storage places to incoming products in Cross Docking centers, reducing the costs associated with the final inventory of each of the products and the costs associated with the distances covered by each load unit. It also achieves a reduction in the time of permanence and an acceleration of the flow of products from reception to dispatch.
