Abstract

The main objective of this paper is to point out all deficiencies within the consignment sorting process. The article suggests an appropriate alternative for unloading, reloading, sorting, and loading of consignments, using the multiple-criteria decision making. Within the decision-making process, the emphasis is put on energy consumption and investment costs in the case of using new handling equipment. The proposed solution will reduce the sorting time, decrease the risk of consignment damage, and increase safety and smoothness of work in the depot.

Keywords: sorting process, multiple-criteria decision making
