Abstract

With high price competition, it is no longer important for enterprises to achieve merely the lowest price but predominantly to gain a competitive advantage using non-financial indicators that include quality distribution, reliability and delivery quality, or cohere supply relationships. The article focuses on introducing the Automated Truck Loading System and its use in the process of loading finished products in a selected industrial enterprise. Further there are mentioned the reasons supporting the decisions about the Automated Truck Loading System. The authors of the article analysed the current state of the process of loading the finished products into trucks and based on the identified deficiencies and requirements of the enterprise; the authors proposed a solution to improve the efficiency of the selected logistics process. As the automation currently plays a key role in logistics, the authors used intelligent/smart technologies that are part of Industry 4.0 in designing the solution. Subsequently, the authors of the paper verified the suitability of the selected solution to the mentioned problem using the Analytic Hierarchy Process method. For multicriteria decision-making, the authors applied Expert Choice software.
