A project for improving the capacity and the operational efficiency of a storage distribution centre is presented in the paper. The goal of the presented research work is to describe and analyze the present state of logistic system in the storage and distribution centre and to propose measures for operation improvements. The results and conclusions of initial analyses appointed us to build a simulation model of a storage and distribution centre that allows more detailed analysis of the system operation.
Transportation costs present significant component in the overall costs of modern logistics companies. Huge effort has been invested in cutting transport costs by computer optimization of vehicle routing. Theoretically, the task is defined as a vehicle routing problem (VRP) and there exist many algorithms for approximate solutions with various tradeoffs. The development of a transport routing application for a distribution centre in Slovenia is presented in this paper.
