Abstract

Cross docking warehousing has become an important logistics strategy in the supply chain management for many distributions industries. The idea of cross docking is to eliminate the storage and order picking function in the warehouse while still allowing it to serve its receiving and shipping function. In the current literature, many cross docking models have been proposed and these models vary based on the cross docking setting and problem tackled. This study presents the gap analysis on the existing cross docking models pertaining to the operational scenarios and features addressed in solving short-term cross docking problem. On top of that, the main concept of cross docking and planning decision level are discussed. The contributions of this study are to identify the gap of knowledge of the cross docking short-term planning and point out future research direction in cross docking.
