Abstract

The expedition processes of the metallurgical enterprise are characterized by the high complexity that results from wide product portfolio, considerable size of products or the ever-increasing complexity of individual orders. Expedition centers of metallurgical enterprises are historically adapted to the formerly prevailing rail transport, instead of the currently prevailing road transport, and during the development there was not implemented a continuous improvement system that would allow them to adapt effectively to changing conditions. The aim of the article is to analyze the causes of waste in the expedition processes of metallurgical enterprises and to present possible approaches to their elimination, which will lead to efficient planning of the expedition or storage of products in the warehouse and to shortening the loading time.
