Example text

A shipper or logistics firm can decide to make an integrated plan for a combination of the above choices; this is the topic of logistics network design, which is about finding well-balanced solutions in terms of the number of consolidation and distribution centres, their locations, the places where inventories are stored and the inventory levels and the transport organisation (modes, vehicle types, routes, departure times) [10, 11]. But is it also possible to distinguish between a group of long-term decisions (such as on the locations) and a group of short-term decisions (such as routing and departure time), that are conditional on the long-term choices.

This would include at least a leg from the sender to the consolidation centre as well as a consolidated leg from the consolidation centre to the consumption zone. Usually, the second leg will have a distribution centre as its destination. There usually is also a third leg from a distribution centre, where the consolidated shipment is broken down into multiple shipments for the different receivers. Consolidation can be done with storage at the transhipment location. However it can also involve the use of ‘cross-docking’, which means that the vehicle from which the goods are unloaded and the vehicle on which the goods are loaded are present at the terminal at the same time, and that the goods are moved from one vehicle to the other, 22 G.
