Abstract

This paper presents the algorithm for designating the number of the transshipment vehicles in the cross-docking system. The problem of minimizing the number of vehicles was presented in a mathematical way. For the examined problem the decision variables, limits and the function of criterion were determined. The crucial importance in this problem is to designate the minimum driving routes of transshipment vehicles in the transshipment facility. For this purpose, the optimization algorithm was developed. The scientific work carried out in the frame of PBS 3 project "System for modeling and 3D visualization of storage facilities" (SIMMAG3D) financed by the NCBR.

Keywords: cross-docking system, genetic algorithm, optimization
