Abstract

Cross docking is a technique that eliminates storaging and order picking functions of a warehouse while still allowing it to serve its receiving and shipping functions. The tradeoff of the method is the reduction in warehousing cost and the increase in customer service with the substantial need of material flow's coordination. We refer to the application of cross-docking technique in the leader retailer in Greece, on its distribution centre at Inofita Viotia Greece
