Cross-docking is a distribution strategy often found in multi-echelon supply networks. The basic idea behind this strategy is the minimization of inventory costs, appearing in multi-echelon distribution with intermediate facilities, by reducing warehouses and distribution centers to purely transshipment facilities (cross-docks) which do not hold inventory. In a typical cross-docking system, the... Read more >>
