Abstract: Using a simulation model of a cross dock, we examine the impacts of various options on moving freight between inbound and outbound trailers. The decisions examined include direct versus indirect handling of pallets, number of open receiving doors, door layout, number of forklifts, size of cross dock and freight mix. This study provides useful insights into handling freight in a cross dock.
